STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Ram Efficiency = (Stagnation Pressure of System-Initial Pressure of System)/(Final Pressure of System-Initial Pressure of System)
η = (p2'-Pi)/(Pf-Pi)
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Ram Efficiency - Ram efficiency is defined as the ratio of the actual rise in pressure and isentropic rise in static pressure.
Stagnation Pressure of System - (Measured in Pascal) - Stagnation Pressure of System is the pressure at the stagnation temperature during the process of ramming.
Initial Pressure of System - (Measured in Pascal) - Initial Pressure of System is the total initial pressure exerted by the molecules inside the system.
Final Pressure of System - (Measured in Pascal) - Final Pressure of System is the total final pressure exerted by the molecules inside the system.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Stagnation Pressure of System: 150000 Pascal --> 150000 Pascal No Conversion Required
Initial Pressure of System: 85000 Pascal --> 85000 Pascal No Conversion Required
Final Pressure of System: 160000 Pascal --> 160000 Pascal No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
η = (p2'-Pi)/(Pf-Pi) --> (150000-85000)/(160000-85000)
Evaluating ... ...
η = 0.866666666666667
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.866666666666667 --> No Conversion Required
0.866666666666667 <-- Ram Efficiency
