Question: a compressor delivers a flow rate q of 140 scfm...

Question details

A compressor delivers a flow rate Q of 140 scfm of air through a 1-in schedule 40 pipe at a receiver pressure p of 105 psig. If the atmospheric pressure patm is assumed to be 14.7 psia, find the pressure loss pf for a pipe of length L equals to 100-ft. [Hint: use the table shown if needed. Also, be reminded that the compression ratio CR = p/patm, and the pressure loss pf = (0.1025 x L x Q2)/(3600 x CR x d5.31)]
