A pump conveys 1,000 gpm of weak acid (SG = 0.95) from a vacuum tank (P = 20 in Hg, T = 100°F) to astorage tank through 6-in S-40 steel piping. The suction pipe length is 4 ft. Assume following total minor friction losses: K = 0.5 on suction side and K = 1.0 on discharge side. a) Calculate TDH b) Calculate NPSHA c) Use answer from part b) to assess whether pump is likely to experience cavitation
