Mechanical force caused by mechanical energy acts real and imaginary forces on impeller blade. Therefore, impeller blade moves in the direction of real force, straightly forward in the direction of tangent perpendicular to rotational radius and the direction of imaginary force, circularly forward in the direction of tangent perpendicular to rotational radius. Former real movement causes on fluid particle radial outward movement, resulting to flow rate Q. Latter imaginary movement causes on fluid particle a rotational motion under the external centripetal and imaginary centrifugal force, resulting to pump head. Pump head is equivalent to external centripetal force and balanced with imaginary centrifugal force in the rotating flow passage.
