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 and 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) and Fluid Velocity (u_{f}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Cavitation Number calculation can be explained with given input values -> -198.4 = (800-100000)/(1000*(1^2)/2).
