Thank you!
Nice to know about this tool, very useful,
I used:

Equation (14)
My results are slightly different, but the process in question is not isothermal, isobaric, or isochoric, the constant is enthalpy...
For future reference, I did figure out that you can calculate the Joule-Thomson coefficient using Van der Waals constants.
Another option uses Beattie-Bridgeman constants.
So I was able to figure it out from those known values.
I've been scouring the web in search of a Joule Thomson coefficient value for methane, but so far no luck.
I have the volume, temperature, and specific heat as well... so I could also use the coefficient of thermal expansion for methane.. but I can't find that anywhere either!!
Does anyone...
The equation I have for velocity through a circular orifice plater is as follows:
Ud = \frac{Yi\timesC}{\sqrt{(1-(d/D)^4)}}\sqrt{\frac{(2\times(P_{2}-P_{1})}{\rho}}
To my understanding, flow becomes choked when this velocity exceeds a Mach number of 1, and is no longer sub-sonic...
I think the difference is that I was assuming an isochoric process, since a tank of fixed volume held the process. Maybe this is not the case? Either way, it should be noted that in my case I am just looking for a valid approximation, so I do not wish to model a differential problem. I have been...
Consider a problem where a tank holds compressed natural gas, compressed to approx. 250 times atmospheric conditions.
Now release the tank valve letting some of the gas out.
Assuming a small timestep, I can approximate the energy lost as 1/2 mv^2,
where m is the mass released during the...
Does anyone know of a good science/engineering series, exploring a broad range of topics.
Essentially I'm searching for Bill Nye for undergraduate/graduate students.
thanks :)
Working on a radiant heat calculation for CNG exiting a blow down stack (in case it was to flare).
Part of the calculation requires the heat content of the gas, and I am unsure of what number to use.
47.8 MJ/kg is the number I am currently using, but I am unsure if this is correct. This...
