This pipe system connects two reservoirs. The reservoir at A has a water surface elevation of 1000 feet and the reservoir at F has a water elevation of 925 feet. All pipes are PVC and lengths and diameters are in the figure. Find the discharge rate in gallons per minute in each pipe segment: AB, Branch 1, Branch 2, and CF. Use the Hazen-Williams Equation. Consider only pipe friction losses. (Hint: This may require an iterated solution.) Explanation: List two characteristics of the Hazen-Williams equation that make it different from the Darcy Equation.
