### Loss of Head due to Friction in Pipe

How do we calculate Loss of Head due to Friction in Pipe? What is the major cause of loss of head or energy in a pipe?

According to Darcy's formula, the loss of head due to friction in the pipe (hf) is given by

where

f = Darcy's coefficient,
l = Length of pipe,
v = Mean velocity of liquid in pipe, and
d = Diameter of pipe.

The major loss of head or energy is due to friction. The minor loss of head includes the following cases:

(a) Loss of head due to sudden enlargement,

(b) Loss of head due to sudden contraction,

where

Cc= Coefficient of contraction.

(c) Loss of head at the inlet of a pipe,

(d) Loss of head at the outlet of a pipe,

### Are Engineers Favourite Among Girls?

What do girls think about men who are engineers and what type of engineers are most favourite among girls? A survey was conducted by a team of aboutmech with members chosen from different countries. Each team member carried out a neutral survey in his/ her country to evaluate what females think about most of the engineers from different engineering branches. An overview of different questions asked in survey is given below: Question: Which male engineers do you find more attractive as a husband? Almost 50% women voted for mechanical engineers to be the most attractive husbands among other engineers. So mechanical engineers are most favourite among girls as a husband. They find them more trustworthy, intelligent, and creative. A married women from California said, “If your husband is a mechanical engineer, he will help you in everyday tasks. Because mechanical engineers are good team players and they have creative ideas about everything.” Which male engineers do you find more
