Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am designing a heat exchanger. I know the mass flow rate required for cooling. I have calculated the pressure drop for current design. How do I work out if the size if the heat exchanger can handle the flow rate ? Does the mass flow rate depend on the size of the heat exchanger tubes ? Is there an equation relating mass flow rate to pressure drop ?

Thank you very much
