To calculate the K factor for a contraction, do you find the inlet pressure and outlet pressure and then find the difference, then divide the pressure difference by rho x gravity to find the value of h and then rearrange h = K (V(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{2}/2g) to find K because im unsure otherwise?
