Example 103

Problem: If the flow in a pipe has a velocity of 3 fps and a pressure of 4 psi, and the velocity of the flow increases to 4 fps, what will the pressure be?

Solution:

Pressurex x Velocity1 = Pressure2 x Velocity2 4 psi x 3 fps = Pressure2 x 4 fps

Rearranging:

Again, this is another important hydraulics principle that is very important to the operation of a centrifugal pump.
