A Accurately calculating the pressure drop through an orifice

  1. Apr 13, 2016 #1
    I have a scenario where a specific nozzle is defined to have a flow of 900cc/min.
    The flow co-efficient for this nozle is defined @9.8 MPa -> flow co-efficient= 0.85.

    If I then run fluid through this nozzle at say 200 MPa and I would like to calculate the pressure drop.
    My understanding is taht I would not get an accurate answer using the flow co-efficient of 0.85 as this is valid at 9.8 MPa.

    Therefore how can I calculate the pressure drop?
