Calculate The Speed Of Water Pump

Question

A 150 kW water pump is expected to generate a head of 105m across the pump when running at best efficiency point, BEP, at a speed of 2500 rpm. If the efficiency of the pump is 77%, determine the specific speed and suggest the type of the pump best suited to this duty.

Assumptions: Take g = 9.81 m/s2 and the density and kinematic energy of water as 1000 kg/m3 and 1 × 10-6 m2/s

 

Summary

The question belongs to Chemistry and it discusses about calculating the speed of a water pump and suggest the type of pump best suited.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
