What is cavitation number?

The Cavitation number (Ca) is a dimensionless number used in flow calculations. It expresses the relationship between the difference of a local absolute pressure from the vapor pressure and the kinetic energy per volume, and is used to characterize the potential of the flow to cavitate.

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 σc symbol.

How to calculate Cavitation Number using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Cavitation Number, enter Pressure (P), mass density (ρ), Fluid Velocity (uf) and Vapour pressure (Pv) 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).

FAQ

What is Cavitation Number?
Cavitation number is a parameter used to find whether a fluid system will cause cavitation or not and is represented as σc=(P-Pv)/(ρ*(uf^2)/2) or Cavitation number=(Pressure-Vapour pressure)/(mass density*(Fluid Velocity^2)/2). The pressure is defined as the physical force exerted on an object. It is symbolized by P, The mass density of a substance is its mass per unit volume, Fluid velocity is the volume of fluid flowing in the given vessel per unit cross sectional area and Vapour pressure of the liquid.
