Head loss through smooth and rough pipes and the relationship between the
friction factor ( f) and Re number:
The determination of the experimental head loss for the smooth and rough pipes was
determined through the following equation:

[1]
Where;

2,

is converted from (cm H 2O) to (N/m2), which is equivalent to (Pa) using Equation

## is the gravity in (m/s 2).

The theoretical head loss was calculated using the pipe friction equation below (htheo)

Where; f is the friction Factor, L is the length of the pipe (all pipes are 1 m long),
and D is the inner diameter of pipe (m).
The velocity of the flow rate (m/s) was calculated using Equation 4.

[2]

## Where; Q is the volumetric flow rate of the water in (m3/s).

Then Reynolds number needed to be calculated using Equation 5 in order to find the
friction factor ( f ) for all pipes (except the first pipe (d = 17mm)) from moody chart.
Also the relative roughness needed to be calculated using Equation 6.

Table 1 shows, the pressure drop for each flow rate in (Pa), the experimental head loss, and
the percentage error between the theoretical and experimental head loss. The friction factor
for this pipe is calculated using the following correlation, not from moody chart because the
value of relative roughness is outside the range of moody chart

[2]

Figure 1: The relation between the head loss (h) and the flow rate (Q) for rough pipe (D = 17
mm).

Figure 1 are obtained by plotting the experimental and theoretical head loss in (m) versus the
water flow rate in (m3/s), while figure 2 represent the relation between the friction factor and
Reynolds's number, which is as Reynolds's number increase, the friction factor decrease.
