D'arcys Equation

  1. Aug 10, 2010 #1
    I have the question and the answer but just keep getting a different answer so here it goes.

    Darcy law h=(4fLv2(square root sign))/2gD

    h=head of water(m)
    f=Friction coefficient (0.007)
    L= equivalent length of pipework (m)
    v= velocity (m/s)
    g= acceleration due to gravity (9.81m/s2)
    D= pipe diameter

    Q. Over a distance of 25m, a 25mm diameter pipe loses 7m of pressure. Using the D'Arcy Equation, determine the velocity of water in the pipe and the flowrate in litres per second.

    Answer = v= 0.215m/s q= 1.086l/s

    Any help would be great thanks

    My attempt


    v2= 2.4525/.7
