Question details

(2) In this problem you will explore the effect that fluid friction has on fluid flow in a pipe. Consider the water storage system shown below. It operates in steady state with a liquid level height h of 10 m. The pipe is smooth with an internal diameter ofD 0.05 m and the density and viscosity of the water are 1000 kg/m and 0.001 kgms, respectively. Your goal is to determine the volumetric flow rate (gallons per minute) through the exit pipe for exit pipes of different lengths. Specifically, you are to examine lengths Lof 1, 100, 1000 and 10000 m. The friction loss in the exit pipe is given by: 4f 2 D where fis the friction factor and vis the velocity. The friction factor ffor turbulent flow in smooth pipes is related to the Reynolds number by: f 0.079 (Re) 25 where the Reynolds number is
