Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics

Note: Equation for water at 68 Fahrenheit. Usually, temperature correction for water is negligible.

## Inputs:

water horsepower (WHP)
flow rate or discharge (Q)

## Conversions:

water horsepower (WHP)
= 0
= 0
horsepower
flow rate or discharge (Q)
= 0
= 0
gallon/minute

= NOT CALCULATED

Water Horsepower
 Solve for water horsepower Solve for flow rate or discharge Solve for total head Solve for pump efficiency Solve for brake horsepower
Net Positive Suction Head and Cavitation
 Solve for NPSH - net positive suction head Solve for fluid or liquid velocity Solve for pressure at impeller inlet Solve for fluid or liquid vapor pressure Solve for specific weight of fluid or liquid Solve for the acceleration of gravity
Where
 WHP = water horsepower Q = flow rate or discharge H = total head n = pump efficiency BHP = brake horsepower NPSH = net positive suction head V = velocity of fluid or liquid p = impeller inlet pressure pv = vapor pressure of fluid or liquid SW = specific weight of fluid or liquid g = acceleration of gravity
