Chapter 2 – Problem 2.13

2.13 The CPU time associated with the surge analysis for each hydrant as described in the previous question is 10 min. How many 24-hr days are required to perform a surge analysis for 10,000 hydrants, if the CPU time could be dropped (for example, switching to a more powerful surge analysis technique) by (a) an order of magnitude (i.e., 10 min to 1 min) and (b) two orders of magnitude (i.e., 10 min to 0.1 min)?
