Problem 73P

Problem 73P

Water is being pumped from a large lake to a reservoir 25 m above at a rate of 25 L/s by a 10-kW (shaft) pump. If the irreversible head loss of the piping system is 5 m, determine the mechanical efficiency of the pump.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution

Step 1 of 5

The pump is moving the water from the large lake to a higher reservoir at 25m as shown in the figure below. The head loss of the pipe is given to be 5m, here we need to calculate the mechanical efficiency of the pump using the energy equation.
