How to Calculate Cavitation Number?
Cavitation Number calculator uses Cavitation number = (Pressure-Vapour Pressure)/(Mass Density*(Fluid Velocity^2)/2) to calculate the Cavitation number, Cavitation number is a parameter used to find whether a fluid system will cause cavitation or not. Cavitation number is denoted by σ_{c} symbol.
How to calculate Cavitation Number using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Cavitation Number, enter Pressure (p), Vapour Pressure (P_{v}), Mass Density (ρ_{m}) & Fluid Velocity (u_{f}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Cavitation Number calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.011061 = (800-6)/(997*(12^2)/2).
