Air Pressure Loss through Piping

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Air Pressure Loss through Piping formula

\(\large{ p_l =   \frac  { \mu \; \cdot \; l \; \cdot \; v_a{^2}   \; \cdot \;  \rho  }  {24d g }   }\)

Where:

\(\large{ p_l }\) = air pressure loss

\(\large{ \rho }\)  (Greek symbol rho) = air density

\(\large{ \mu }\)  (Greek symbol mu) = air friction coefficient

\(\large{ v_a }\) = air velocity

\(\large{ g }\) = gravitational acceleration

\(\large{ d }\) = pipe inside diameter

\(\large{ l }\) = pipe length
