Pressure loss coefficient

  1. Jul 24, 2009 #1
    I want to calculate the pressure loss coefficent for a diffuser but I can't find the equation. I tried with bernoulli but I don't get it. I've read that the coefficient depends on the lenght the scale and conical degree of the difuser?

    Can you help me?

    thank you!

    Without the dimensions i can't calculate it properly, but 0.4 x 1/2pv^2 will more than cover the resistance in pascals.

    p= air density which is approx 1.2 kg m^3
