## Question:

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/${ ft }^{ 3 }$
