Water Pressure Loss through Piping

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Water Pressure Loss Through Piping formula

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

Where:

\(\large{ p_l }\) = water pressure loss through piping

\(\large{ g }\) = gravitational acceleration (9.80665 m/s2 or 32.1740 ft/s2)

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

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

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

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

\(\large{ SG }\) = water specific gravity

\(\large{ v_w }\) = water velocity
