Estimate the power, Physics

An engineer is making an estimate for a home owner. This owner has a small stream (Q = 1.4 cfs, T = 40°F) that is located at an elevation H = 34 ft above the owner's residence. The owner is proposing to dam the stream, diverting the flow through a pipe (penstock). This flow will spin a hydraulic turbine, which in turn will drive a generator to produce electrical power. Estimate the maximum power in kilowatts that can be generated if there is no head loss and both the turbine and generator are 100% efficient. Also, estimate the power if the head loss is 5.5 ft, the turbine is 70% efficient, and the generator is 90% efficient.
