Instructions: Complete this assignment by solving each of the following problems (formulas). This assignment provides you with an opportunity to accomplish the following course learning outcome:

1. Apply the laws of mathematics and physics to the movement of water in fire suppression activities.

Save all of your work within this worksheet before submitting it in Blackboard for grading.

1. Calculate the total friction loss by using the following details. Be sure to show all of your work. In the table below, clearly indicate your final answer along with the appropriate units of measure (i.e., The total friction loss is XX psi for XXX feet of X-inch hose). Round your answer to the nearest whole number.

Hose diameter 1.75-inch
Volume (of water) 150 gpm
Hose length 300 feet
Friction loss =

2. Determine the pump discharge pressure for a scenario containing the following details. You are using a handheld smooth-bore nozzle for this scenario. Be sure to show all of your work. In the table below, clearly indicate the total friction loss, pump discharge pressure, along with the appropriate units of measure (i.e., The total friction loss is XX psi for XXX feet of X-inch hose plus any applicable appliance loss or elevation gain/loss). Round your answer to the nearest whole number.

Hose diameter 2-inch
Volume (of water) 200 gpm
Hose length 250 feet
Friction Loss =
