# Calculate Total Head Loss Between Two Points

Question

Look at figure below and use. Water (50°F) flows at 250 gpm through the pipe system at the bottom of this page. All piping is four inch (4”) diameter cast iron. The distance between points A and B along the open flow path is 500 ft. Calculate the total head loss between points A and B. Assume A and B are at the same elevation. Use the following minor loss coefficients for the fittings:

Fitting                                         Minor Loss Coefficient

Open Valve                                                     0.20

90° Smooth Bend                                           0.35 (r/d = 1)

0.19 (r/d = 2)

0.16 (r/d = 4)

0.21 (r/d = 6)

0.28 (r/d = 8)

0.30 (r/d = 10)

Teeâ€¨                                                            0.6 (Straight-through flow)

1. 8 (Side-Outlet Flow)

90° Elbow                                                                   0.30

Summary

The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it discusses about calculating the total head loss between the two points A and B. The solution discusses this in more detail.

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
