Head loss due to friction/unit length of pipe is proportional to mean velocity square V² and inversely proportional to diameter D of the pipe.

V = volumetric flow rate.. remains same

So head loss due to friction : ratio when flowing full / when flowing half full = 1

V = volumetric flow rate.. remains same

So head loss due to friction : ratio when flowing full / when flowing half full = 1
