Pressure Differential

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

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

formula

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

Where:

\(\Delta p\) or \(p_d\) = pressure differential

\(p_c\) = change in pressure

\(m\) = mass flow rate

\(d \) = pipe diameter

\(\rho\) (Greek symbol rho) = fluid density
