## Exit Pressure Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Exit pressure = Inlet Pressure*(((1+(Specific Heat Ratio Dynamic-1)/2*Mach Number^2))^-((Specific Heat Ratio Dynamic)/(Specific Heat Ratio Dynamic-1)))
Pa = Pinlet*(((1+(κ-1)/2*M^2))^-((κ)/(κ-1)))
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Exit pressure - (Measured in Pascal) - Exit pressure is the pressure at the exit or the output or the end of a pipe or a flow channel.
Inlet Pressure - (Measured in Pascal) - The Inlet Pressure is the amount of pressure generated inside the combustion chamber of a rocket.
Specific Heat Ratio Dynamic - The Specific Heat Ratio Dynamic is the ratio of the heat capacity at constant pressure to heat capacity at constant volume.
Mach Number - Mach number is a dimensionless quantity representing the ratio of flow velocity past a boundary to the local speed of sound.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Inlet Pressure: 20 Megapascal --> 20000000 Pascal (Check conversion here)
Specific Heat Ratio Dynamic: 1.392758 --> No Conversion Required
Mach Number: 5.5 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Pa = Pinlet*(((1+(κ-1)/2*M^2))^-((κ)/(κ-1))) --> 20000000*(((1+(1.392758-1)/2*5.5^2))^-((1.392758)/(1.392758-1)))
Evaluating ... ...
Pa = 20767.5133745358
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
20767.5133745358 Pascal -->0.0207675133745358 Megapascal (Check conversion here)
0.0207675133745358 Megapascal <-- Exit pressure

## What is exit pressure?

The pressure generated at the exit of the nozzle is called as eit pressure. When exhaust gases flow from combustion chamber to the nozzle, the airflow changes depending upon the size and shape of the nozzle, thus bringing a change in the outlet pressure. It relates to the total pressure available in the combustion chamber and the Mach number.

## How to Calculate Exit Pressure?

Exit Pressure calculator uses Exit pressure = Inlet Pressure*(((1+(Specific Heat Ratio Dynamic-1)/2*Mach Number^2))^-((Specific Heat Ratio Dynamic)/(Specific Heat Ratio Dynamic-1))) to calculate the Exit pressure, The Exit Pressure formula defines the exit pressure at an exhaust given that we know the total pressure and the Mach number. Exit pressure is denoted by Pa symbol.
