The three jet Pelton turbine is required to generate 10,000 KW under a net head of 400 m

The blade angle at outlet is 150ยบ and the reduction in the relative velocity while passing over the blade is 5%. If the overall efficiency of the wheel is 80%, Cv = 0.98 and speed ratio = 0.46, then find: i) the diameter of the jet, ii) total flow in m3/s and iii) the force exerted by a jet on the bucket
