V = Vt*()^n
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Settling Velocity of Group of Particles - (Measured in Meter per Second) - Settling Velocity of Group of Particles is the velocity with which the particles settle .
Terminal Velocity of Single Particle - (Measured in Meter per Second) - Terminal Velocity of single particle is the velocity resulting from the action of accelerating and drag forces.
Void fraction - Void fraction the fraction of the channel volume that is occupied by the gas phase.
Richardsonb Zaki Index - Richardsonb Zaki Index is the the fractional volumetric concentration of solid.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Terminal Velocity of Single Particle: 0.198 Meter per Second --> 0.198 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
Void fraction: 0.75 --> No Conversion Required
Richardsonb Zaki Index: 2.39 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
V = Vt*(∈)^n --> 0.198*(0.75)^2.39
Evaluating ... ...
V = 0.0995546637305364

## What is Drag force?

Drag force is the resistance force of a fluid. This force applies acting opposite towards the motion of the object which is moving submerge in a certain fluid. Thus Drag Force is defined as the force which resists the motion of a body with fluid.

## What is Terminal Velocity?

The terminal Velocity refers to the settling velocity of a single particle in the suspension, assuming it's isolated and not interacting with other particles.
