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

I am a mechanical engineer and am attempting to build an Excel document for calculations purposes.

Currently I am stuck on orifice plate calculations.

I was wondering if someone could help me solve the following equation for d_{2}?

[tex]\alpha[/tex] = [tex]\pi[/tex](d_{2}/2)^{2}[tex]\sqrt{}[/tex]1/1-(d_{2}/d_{1})^{4}

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
