PRESSURE DIFFERENTIAL

Pressure differential is the pressure difference between two points of a system.

PRESSURE DIFFERENTIAL FORMULA

\(\large{ \Delta p = \frac {   1.59923 p_c d4   \rho   }  { m^2 } }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ \Delta p }\) or \(\large{ p_d }\) = pressure differential

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

\(\large{ m }\) = mass flow rate

\(\large{ p_c }\) = change in pressure

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