The buckets on the Pelton wheel are subjected to a jet of water of diameter d, which has velocity { v }_{ w } . If each bucket is traveling at speed { v }_{ b } when the water strikes it, determine the power developed by the wheel. The density of water is { γ }_{ w } . Given: d = 2 in , θ = 20 deg , { v }_{ w } = 150 ft/s , g = { 32.2ft/s }^{ 2 } , { v }_{ b } = 95 ft/s , { γ }_{ w } = 62.4 lbf/ { ft }^{ 3 }
