Hello, I am currently a chemical engineering major and i have a question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What exactly does pressure drop tell you?

i know the equations to solve for pressure drop for various situations (using ergon equation for a bed, or skin friction for pipes, using friction factor, etc etc ( is there more?) ) but I dont exactly know what a high pressure drop or low pressure drop means (physically)

Thank you
