Head Loss in a Sharp Edged Pipe Entrance - Solved Example (Hydraulics)

Hi,
With this example problem, you will understand how to find the head loss at the sharp edged pipe entrance, where water enters at a given flow rate.

Problem:
A 150 mm diameter pipe conveys water at a flow rate Q = 0.2 m3/sec from a reservoir using a sharp edged exit as shown below. What is the head loss at the point where water leaves the reservoir?


Solution:


If you have any doubt in understanding the solution, please leave a comment below.
