Need help with calculation...

I am hoping somebody might be able to help me figure this one out.

How many pounds of pressure (PSI) would it take to move seawater with a density 0f 64 lbs CU/FT at a rate of 250,000 gallons per minute?

Not sure how to work this one out, or if I have all of the necassary information.


RE: Need help with calculation...

You don't have a complete problem yet, you need to know

-What is the elevation change between where you are pumping from and where are you going to
-What is your fluid velocity (you need to know pipe area to calculate this)
