Discharge of a centrifugal pump is

Answer: Option

Explanation:

**Discharge** of a centrifugal pump is directly proportional to (Diameter)^2 of its impeller.

**Head** of a centrifugal pump is directly proportional to (Diameter)^2 of its impeller.

Here the discharge is asked,

I believe discharge refers to the outlet of the centrifugal compressor so

Q= π* D*B*Vf2 is the formula, that means A-option is the correct one to be chosen.

Q= π x D x B x Vf.

Here, B also depends on D.

Vf depends on u means depends on DN,

So Q is directly proportional to D^3,

So all options are wrong.

Here, B also depends on D.

Vf depends on u means depends on DN,

So Q is directly proportional to D^3,

So all options are wrong.

Q= π*D*v*b and v=πdN/60.

So the right answer is proportional to d^2.

So the right answer is proportional to d^2.

Q/{N(D^3)}=constant.

So the correct answer is Q is directly proportional to cube of the diameter(D) of the impeller.

So the correct answer is Q is directly proportional to cube of the diameter(D) of the impeller.
