Question: 1 a calculate the friction head loss per 100 ft...

Question details

1. A) Calculate the friction head loss per 100 ft of 6” diameter pipe for a Reynolds number of 40,000 if the flow is turbulent in a smooth pipe. The kinematic Viscosity is 1.059*10-5 ft2/sec.

B.) Same as Problem 1 (L = 100 ft, D = 6”, R = 40,000) except the flow is turbulent in a rough pipe (e/D = 0.05). Kinematic Viscosity is the same as problem 1

C.) Water at 50 degrees Fahrenheit flowing through 90 ft of 6 inch diameter cast-iron pipe causes a friction head loss of 0.22 ft. Calculate the flow rate.

D.) A 4500 m long steel pipe (e = 0.065 mm) conveys oil ( = 5.2*10-5 m2 /s) at 240 L/s between two reservoirs with surface elevations that differ by 86 m (= hf). Calculate the required pipe size to convey the given flow

Please show all work so I can see how to go about solving these type of problems in the future. Thank you
