Question

The driving force for fluid flow is the pressure difference, and a pump operates by raising the pressure of a fluid (by converting the mechanical shaft work to flow energy). A gasoline pump is measured to consume 3.8 kW of electric power when operating, If the pressure differential between-the outlet and inlet of the pump is measured to be 7 kPa and the changes in velocity and elevation are negligible, determine the maximum possible volume flow rate of gasoline.
