Velocity coefficient Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
velocity_coefficient = Actual exit velocity/Ideal exit velocity
Cv = cactual/cideal
This formula uses 2 Variables
Variables Used
Actual exit velocity - Actual exit velocity is the velocity at the exit of nozzle, it includes losses due to external factors. (Measured in Meter per Second)
Ideal exit velocity - Ideal exit velocity is the velocity at the exit of nozzle, it does not includes losses due to external factors. (Measured in Meter per Second)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Actual exit velocity: 15 Meter per Second --> 15 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
Ideal exit velocity: 15 Meter per Second --> 15 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Cv = cactual/cideal --> 15/15
Evaluating ... ...
Cv = 1
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
1 --> No Conversion Required
FINAL ANSWER
1 <-- Velocity coefficient
(Calculation completed in 00.006 seconds)

What is velocity coefficient?

The velocity coefficient is the ratio of the actual exit velocity to the ideal exit velocity, It represents the effect of frictional loss in the boundary layer of the nozzle.

How to Calculate Velocity coefficient?

Velocity coefficient calculator uses velocity_coefficient = Actual exit velocity/Ideal exit velocity to calculate the Velocity coefficient, The Velocity coefficient formula is defined as the ratio of actual exit velocity to the ratio of ideal exit velocity. Velocity coefficient and is denoted by Cv symbol.

Here is how the Velocity coefficient calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1 = 15/15.

FAQ

What is Velocity coefficient?
The Velocity coefficient formula is defined as the ratio of actual exit velocity to the ratio of ideal exit velocity and is represented as Cv = cactual/cideal or velocity_coefficient = Actual exit velocity/Ideal exit velocity. Actual exit velocity is the velocity at the exit of nozzle, it includes losses due to external factors and Ideal exit velocity is the velocity at the exit of nozzle, it does not includes losses due to external factors.
How to calculate Velocity coefficient?
The Velocity coefficient formula is defined as the ratio of actual exit velocity to the ratio of ideal exit velocity is calculated using velocity_coefficient = Actual exit velocity/Ideal exit velocity. To calculate Velocity coefficient, you need Actual exit velocity (cactual) and Ideal exit velocity (cideal). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Actual exit velocity and Ideal exit velocity and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
