You have two supply nodes with connections to a total of six other nodes. 

The pressure at the supply nodes G and H is fixed at 240 lbs/square inch (PSI). 

There's a known demand at each of the six other nodes in C13:H13 of the Arc Resistance worksheet. 

You need to calculate the pressure at each node and the flow across each arc.
