Relationship of discharge and minor loss coefficient

  1. Feb 5, 2017 #1
    What is relationship between discharge coefficient and minor loss coefficient. Am I right with that equations?
    hl – minor head loss
    k – minor loss coefficient
    ρ – air density
    A – pipe cross section area
    Cd – discharge coefficient
    Δp – pressure drop
    u – air velocity
    m – mass flow

    here is written that it is true:

    but what with case when k <= 1 ?

    is that question too difficult?
