A pump is delivering water at atmospheric pressure to an

elevation of 400 m. Elevation of the pump centerline is 10 m. Find the static

discharge head.

The main feedwater pump of a PWR delivers water to the steam

generator at a rate of 15,000 GPM (946.3 lit/s). The steam generator pressure

is 900 psia (6.2 MPa). The difference between the discharge and the pump

centerline elevation is 100 ft (30.48 m). Find the pump static discharge head.

Water temperature is 450 F (232.2 C).
