Calculate Water Flow Rate And Power Requirement


The tubes in an oil cooler are 25 mm OD and 2.5 m long and are so mounted that the centres of any 3 adjacent tubes form an equilateral triangle of 40 mm side. There are 150 such triangles. Water is pumped between tubes in a lengthwise direction at 3 m/s.


(a) the water flow rate

(b) the power required to overcome friction if f = 0.01.



The question belongs to Chemistry and it discusses about calculating the flow rate and the power required to overcome friction in a pipe line. This has been discussed in the solution 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
