A horizontal shaft centrifugal pump lifts water at 65 C. The suction nozzle is one meter below the pump centerline. The pressure at this point equals 200 kPa gauge and the velocity is 3 m/s. Steam tables show saturation pressure at 65 C is 25 kPa, and the specific volume of the saturated liquid is 0.001020 m^3/kg. The pump's Net Positive suction Head (NPSH) in meters is
