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

I was wondering if when calculating the fanning friction factor, do english units need to be used?

The equation for the head friction is

h_f = 4f(L/D)V^2/2

where L is the length, D is the diameter of the pipe, and f is the fanning friction factor. This ends up having units of length squared/time squared, but I think it should be power/mass
