## 11.16 For the “sprinkler turbine’’ of

Fig. P11.15, let R = 18 cm, with total flow
rate of 14 m3/h of water at 20°C. If the
nozzle exit diameter is 8 mm, estimate
(a) the maximum power delivered in W and
(b) the appropriate rotation rate in r/min.
Solution: For water at 20°C, take ρ ≈
998 kg/m3. Each arm takes 7 m3/h: Fig. P11.15

11.17 A centrifugal pump has d1 = 7 in, d2 = 13 in, b1 = 4 in, b2 = 3 in, β1 = 25°, and β2 = 40°
and rotates at 1160 r/min. If the fluid is gasoline at 20°C and the flow enters the blades
radially, estimate the theoretical (a) flow rate in gal/min, (b) horsepower, and (c) head in ft.

Solution: For gasoline, take ρ ≈ 1.32 slug/ft3. Compute ω = 1160 rpm = 121.5 rad/s.

## 11.18 A jet of velocity V strikes a vane

which moves to the right at speed Vc, as in
Fig. P11.18. The vane has a turning angle θ.
Derive an expression for the power deliv-
ered to the vane by the jet. For what vane
speed is the power maximum?
Fig. P11.18

Solution: The jet approaches the vane at relative velocity (V − Vc). Then the force is
F = ρA(V − Vc)2(1 − cosθ ), and Power = FVc = ρAVc(V − Vc)2(1 − cosθ) Ans. (a)

11.19 A centrifugal water pump has r2 = 9 in, b2 = 2 in, and β 2 = 35° and rotates at 1060 r/min.
If it generates a head of 180 ft, determine the theoretical (a) flow rate in gal/min and
(b) horsepower. Assume near-radial entry flow.
