Question details

1. Pump efficiency is determined using the following equation: o pump efficiency Q o volumetric flow rate o differential pressure between pump inlet and outlet W o power input to pump The following instruments are used to measure ΔΡ.Q, and W. ΔΡ, Differential pressure transducer Range - 0-1200 kPa Accuracy 0.2% of span (includes linearity, hysteresis) Stability 0.2% of span Q, Flowmeter - Range - 0-1200 LPM Accuracy ±1.5% of reading Power Accuracy -0.07 W In repeated measurements, the average value of AP, Q, and vW LPM, and 5.00 kW, respectively. The corresponding standard deviations are 10 kPa, 5.6 LPM, and 0.15 kW. For each variable, 15 measurements were carried out re found to be 700 kPa, 340 a. Calculate the pump efficiency b. Calculate the random and systematic uncertainty of the efficiency C. Calculate the total uncertainty of the efficiency at a 95% confidence interval
