his experiment was to observe and comprehend the nature of a frictional flow of afluid in a pipe and the relationship with the fluids) Reynolds ,umber. -s a fluid flows throu(h a pipe&ener(y losses will occur in the form of e.(. heat and sound. These losses in ener(y are referred to as headlosses& which were derived usin( “ernoulli)s principle. ead losses can be classified as ma+or headlosses or minor head losses. Minor head losses can be defined as the ener(y lost due to fixtures such as bends and valves present in the system& while ma+or head losses are defined as losses of ener(y due tothe frictional resistance which acts a(ainst the flow of the fluid& which can be calculated usin( thefollowin( formula /which is *nown as the arcy1eisbach e3uation4:
