##### Reference no: EM131368919

A centrifugal pump with a 12-in.-diameter impeller requires a power input of 60 hp when the flowrate is 3200 gpm against a 60-ft head. The impeller is changed to one with a 10-in. diameter. Determine the expected flowrate, head, and input power if the pump speed remains the same.s
