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

Pick the given values from the question.

The pressure drop equation is given by,

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

By substituting the given values calculate the pressure drop.

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/s

^{2}**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

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/s

^{2}**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
