Hello guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I just came out with a new idea for my thesis project which is to improve the air filter system (drop-in type).

Currently I doing some basic analysis based on the current stock air filter before I proceed to my prototype air filter system.

Says, I've been given an air filter which the area is 0.25m X 0.15m =0.0375m^2.

I assumed theρof the air at average temperature (27.5 C ≈ 300 K) is about1.161 kg/m^3.

We already know that,mass flow rate = (density)(volumetric flow rate) = (density)(area)(velocity)

Based on the data given above, how can I determine the velocity of the air going inside the air box?

- there are several unknownsvolumetric flow rate, mass flow rate

By using this equation,velocity = (volumetric flow rate) / (area)can I assume the velocity of the air is the same with the velocity of the car? (its seems like the velocity of the air (in m/s) too big.

Hope our engineers and pros may help me by solving this problem together. Thanks.

***sorry for my bad language. I trying to make it clear for better understanding***
