Fundamental mechanisms of energy transfer, which is caused between impeller blade and fluid particles in centrifugal pumps and water turbines, are discussed together with as a turbomachinery under same theoretical basement. This leads to the result that the fluid flow which directs radial outward in pump and that radial inward in water turbine are neither caused by centrifugal force nor centripetal force, but caused by tangential forward force, which acts on the impeller blade in the direction perpendicular to rotational radius. Hydraulic energies of fluid particles transferred from mechanical to hydraulic energy in pump and that to be transferred from hydraulic to mechanical energy in water turbine appear as centrifugal force FHCF in rotational flow passage.
