## Length of the stroke given volume of liquid Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Length of stroke = Volume of liquid sucked/Area of piston
L = V/Ap
This formula uses 2 Variables
Variables Used
Volume of liquid sucked - Volume of liquid sucked is amount of liquid sucked in. (Measured in Meter³ per Second)
Area of piston - Area of piston is the value of area of the piston in a piston pump. (Measured in Square Meter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Volume of liquid sucked: 10 Meter³ per Second --> 10 Meter³ per Second No Conversion Required
Area of piston: 0.1 Square Meter --> 0.1 Square Meter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
L = V/Ap --> 10/0.1
Evaluating ... ...
L = 100
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
100 Meter --> No Conversion Required
100 Meter <-- Length of stroke
(Calculation completed in 00.000 seconds)

Power required to drive double acting reciprocating pump
Power = 2*Specific Weight*Area of piston*Length of stroke*Speed*(Height of the centre of the cylinder+Height to which the liquid is raised)/60000 Go
Power required to drive the pump
Power = Specific Weight*Area of piston*Length of stroke*Speed*(Height of the centre of the cylinder+Height to which the liquid is raised)/60000 Go
Weight of water delivered in terms of area, stroke length and speed
Weight of liquid = Specific Weight*Area of piston*Length of stroke*Speed/60 Go
Slip percentage
Slip percentage = (1-(Actual discharge of a pump/Theoretical discharge of a pump))*100 Go
Co-efficient of discharge of pump
Coefficient of Discharge = Actual discharge/Theoretical Discharge Go
Cross sectional area of piston given volume of liquid
Area of piston = Volume of liquid sucked/Length of stroke Go
Length of the stroke given volume of liquid
Length of stroke = Volume of liquid sucked/Area of piston Go
Slip of the pump
Pump slippage = Theoretical Discharge-Actual discharge Go
Weight of water delivered per second
Weight of liquid = Specific Weight*Discharge Go
Slip Percentage in terms of coefficient of discharge
Slip percentage = (1-Coefficient of Discharge)*100 Go

### Length of the stroke given volume of liquid Formula

Length of stroke = Volume of liquid sucked/Area of piston
L = V/Ap

## What are reciprocating pumps?

The reciprocating pump is a positive displacement pump as it sucks and raises the liquid by actually displacing it with a piston/plunger that executes a reciprocating motion in a closely fitting cylinder. The amount of liquid pumped is equal to the volume displaced by the piston.

## How to Calculate Length of the stroke given volume of liquid?

Length of the stroke given volume of liquid calculator uses Length of stroke = Volume of liquid sucked/Area of piston to calculate the Length of stroke, The Length of the stroke given volume of liquid formula is defined as the ratio of volume of liquid to the area of piston. Length of stroke is denoted by L symbol.
