Houston Community College Fluid in Motion Viscosity and Density Question
I’m trying to study for my Engineering course and I need some help to understand this question.
Oil is pumped through a pipe at a rate of 54 cubic meters per hour. The pipe is 0.37 miles long and has a radius of 50 mm. If the viscosity and density of the oil are 0.00525 kg m/s and 930 kg/m3 respectively determine the loss of head in meters due to friction. Friction coefficient f is given by the relationship 0.064 R-0.23 and R is the Reynold’s number.
