Problem 21P

The analysis of a propeller that operates in water at 20°C shows that the pressure at the tips of the propeller drops to2 kPa at high speeds. Determine if there is a danger of cavitation for this propeller.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1:

        Temperature of water T = 20°C or 293.15 K

        Pressure at the tips of the propeller Ptip = 2 kPa

        To determine if there is a danger of cavitation for this propeller at the pressure given temperature

Step 2:

        The vapour pressure of water may be approximated by

        Psat = exp (20.386 - )

        Here Psat  in mm Hg and T in kelvin

Step 3:

        Psat = exp (20.386 - )

        Psat = 17.81 mm Hg
