Question details

The figure shows a schematic of a centrifugal pump. The fluid enters axially and passes through the pump blades, which rotate at angular velocity w; the velocity of the fluid is changed from Vi to V2 and its pressure from pi to p2. (a) Find an expression for the torque To which must be applied to these blades to maintain this flow. (b) The power supplied to the pump would be P-w . To. To illustrate numerically, suppose 0.2 m, r2 -0.5 m and b 0.15 m. Let the pump rotate at 600 rev/min and deliver water at 2.5 m3/s with a density of 1000 kg/m3. Compute the idealized torque and power supplied. 12 Blade InflowW z,k Pump blade -shape Blade Width b
