    That one made sense for a minute, now I'm second-guessing that 40% thing. Please stand by.........

    This was the smartest thing I posted on this thread.

    (RPM1/RPM2) = (CFM1/CFM2)

    (BHP1/BHP2) = (RPM1/RPM2)^3


    8000CFM/1000CFM = 0.8 = (RPM1/RPM2)

    0.8^3 =0.512 ==> approx 50% ish.

    10x(8000/10000)3{Cubed}

    Should be "8" as in 8 hp.

    So, it's 20%

    Pumps are easier.

    Only from replying to nonsense threads and posts started by idiots that serve no real purpose. And that will only last until BC1 quits borrowing Don's balls to stop the trouble that they start, and then hightail it out.

    new H.P.=old H.P.(new CFM/old CFM)^3
    =10(8,000/10,000)^3
    =10(.8)^3
    =10(.512)
    new H.P.=5.12H.P., so answer is "D"
