Pressure Drop Calculator
Top
Pressure drop calculator is an online tool for easy calculation. It is given as the pressure difference between two points of a fluid. The mathematical representation of the pressure drop is given as


J=$\frac{fLv^{2}}{2gD}$

Where J is the pressure drop
           f is the friction factor
           L is the length of the pipe
           v is the velocity
           g is the gravity constant
           D is the inner diameter of the pipe

  1. Calculate the pressure drop if the length of the pipe is 15m and inner diameter is 0.5m. The velocity of the fluid is given by 60m/s and the friction factor 0.2.


    Step 1 :  

    From the question it is clear that,


    f=0.2, L=15m, v=60m/s, D=0.5m and g=9.8m/s2



    Step 2 :  

    The pressure drop equation is given by,


    J=$\frac{fLv^{2}}{2gD}$


    J=$\frac{0.2×15×60^{2}}{2×9.8×0.5}$


    J=1102.04081 m



    Answer  :  

    Pressure drop is given by,

    J=1102.04081 m



  2. Determine the pressure drop if the length of the pipe is 10m and inner diameter is 0.2m. The velocity of the fluid is given by 30m/s and the friction factor 0.5.


    Step 1 :  

    From the question it is clear that,


    f=0.5, L=10m, v=30m/s, D=0.2m and g=9.8m/s2



    Step 2 :  

    The pressure drop equation is given by,


    J=$\frac{fLv^{2}}{2gD}$


    J=$\frac{0.5×10×30^{2}}{2×9.8×0.2}$


    J=1147.95918 m



    Answer  :  

    Pressure drop is given by,

    J=1147.95918 m
