Written by Matt Milbury on . Posted in Pump

H - Hydraulic head is the measurement mechanical energy due to pressure of a fluid from a higher elevation to a lower elevation.

Formula

\(h = \frac {p}{g \rho} \)

Where:

\(h\)= head

\(p\) = pressure

\(g\) = gravitational acceleration

\(\rho\) = density
