Solutions to Practice Problems
1. P = 0.43 x h (Equation 2-2b)
P = 0.43 x 50 ft = 22 psi at the bottom of the reservoir
P = 0.43 x (50 - 30) = 0.43 x 20 ft = 8.6 psi above the bottom

8. Q = A1 x V1 = A2 x V2 (Eq. 2-5)
Since A = πD2/4, we can write
D12 x V1 = D22 x V2 and V2 = V1 x (D12 /D22)
In the constriction, V2 = (2 m/s) x (4) = 8 m/s
11. p1/w + v12/2g = p2/w + v22/2g (Eq. 2-8)
A1 = π(0.300)2/4 = 0.0707 m2 A2 = π(0.100)2/4 = 0.00785 m2

12. From Figure 2.15, with Q = 200 L/s and D = 600 mm, read S = 0.0013.
13. hL = 2.3 x 20 = 46 ft and S = 46/5280 = 0.0087 (where 1 mi = 5280 ft)
14. S = 10/1000 = 0.01
15. Use (Eq. 2-10): Q = C x A2 x {(2g(p1 – p2)/w)/(1 - (A2/A1)2}1/2
16. Use (Eq. 2-10): Q = C x A2 x {(2g(p1 – p2)/w)/(1 - (A2/ A1 )2)}1/2
17. Use Manning's nomograph (Figure 2.21): With D = 800 mm = 80 cm, and

20. Q = 7 mgd = 7,000,000 gal/day x 1 day/1440 min 4900 gpm
21. For full-flow conditions, with D = 300 mm and S = 0.02, read from
23. For full-flow conditions, from Fig. 2.21 read Q = 0.55 m3/s = 550 L/s. From Fig.
25. Q = A x V = 2 x 0.75 x 25/75 = 0.5 m3/s = 500 L/s
