A: 15ppm
Correct
03.
Q: What are the two factors that should be ensured when the total head for a ground water pump is calculated?
A: There is no suction lift. Instead there is static water table and the drawdown has to be added to the elevation lift.
Correct
04.
Q: How do we calculate head requirement from the pump?
A: Elevation lift + static water level + drawdown in the well + pressure head of the application device + friction loss in the pipes
Correct

Q: What determines the minimum flow of a pump?
A: The amount of water that needs to be applied to the crops during peak periods.
Correct
06.
