Solutions to Practice Problems
1. 52,500 people x 180 gal/person/d = 9,450,000 9.5 mgd
4. F = 2 x P x A x sin(Δ/2): F = 2 x 600x(πx0.3052/4)xsin(90/2) = 62 kN
6. Tabulation for system head curve, using Fig. 2.15, with friction head loss hL = S x L
and TDH = hL + static head:

8. (continued)
9. Pout = Q x TDH/3960 (Eq. 7-7)
10. Pout = 9.8 x Q x TDH (Eq. 7-6)
II. Equalizing storage: 32,000 people x 500 L/d/person x 0.20 = 3.2 ML
.12. Pressure loss from the pump station to withdrawal point A is 100 kPa; the
13. Assume Q = 50 L/s; use the nomograph in Figure 2.15.
From Figure 2.15, with S = 0.005 and Q = 50 L/s, D = 260 mm
