## Head Loss due to Friction given Power Required in Turbulent Flow Formula

Head loss due to friction = Power/(Density of Fluid*[g]*Discharge)
hf = P/(ρFluid*[g]*Q)

## What is head loss due to friction?

Head loss is potential energy that is converted to kinetic energy. Head losses are due to the frictional resistance of the piping system (pipes, valves, fittings, entrance, and exit losses). Unlike the velocity head, the friction head cannot be ignored in system calculations. Values vary as the square of the flow rate.

## What is turbulent flow?

The turbulence or turbulent flow is fluid motion characterized by chaotic changes in pressure and flow velocity. It is in contrast to a laminar flow, which occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no disruption between those layers.
