Reynolds Number for Gas

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Reynolds Number for Gas Formula

\(\large{ Re = 20,100 \; \frac{ SG \; Q_g }{ d \; \eta }  }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ Re }\) = Reynolds number

\(\large{ Q_g }\) = gas flow rate

\(\large{ \eta }\)  (Greek symbol eta)  = gas viscosity

\(\large{ SG }\) = gas specific gravity relative to water (water = 1)

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