Relationship between modern concepts of pipe resistance and older empirical formulas is clarified, and simple procedure developed to derive exponential formula applicable to known range of flow conditions; data on resistance measurements in water mains in service indicate that head loss varies with discharge to power nearly equal to 2.0 rather than 1.85 as commonly assumed.
