A page-turning, true-crime exposé of the subprime salesmen and Wall road alchemists who produced the largest monetary scandal in American heritage
“It's not easy to have a accountable moral sense in the event you don't have a sense of right and wrong. something that benefited construction - that benefited me and benefited my pockets – I'd do it. ”
The revenues strength at Ameriquest loan took this philosophy to center.

H. Anderson6 has quantified Eq. 43 for such machines. These pumps were all operating in water and had sufficient NPSH for performance not to be influenced by ⍀ss. The results are given by Eq. 25 FIGURE 10 Efficiency of centrifugal pumps versus specific speed, size, and shape–adapted from Anderson6. Note: Actual experience for Ns Ͼ 2286 shows higher efficiency, as indicated by the dashed line. 2 Eq. 44 is a combination of separate relationships described by Anderson for efficiency and speed as functions of flow rate6.
Beyond this general picture is the related performance of a real pump geometry in a real fluid. Although, for centrifugal pumps, the specific speed has the major effect on performance, the available NPSH and the viscosity of the pumpage also have an influence. These are evident in the following formal statement of the efficiency of an optimized pump (cf Eq. 35) 1hmax 2 5GI6opt ϭ f 1⍀s, ⍀ss, 52-£6, 5⌫p 6, 5 g 6, Re, H, Q 2 (39) where the radius r2, representing the size, has been eliminated from the other variables in Eq.
Discharge flange or exit (ex) of the pump. ϭ at the “eye” of the impeller. The “eye” is the throat (minimumdiameter point) at the entrance into the impeller and is the area defined by the “eye plane,” which is normal to the axis of rotation. “e” can refer more specifically to the shroud or maximum-diameter point within the eye, as with re (Figure 13) or Ue. The inlet tips of the impeller blades are generally at or near this location. ϭ exit of diffuser or the discharge flange or port of the pump (d).
