Enter the pressure drop at which cavitation occurs and the difference between the inlet and vapor pressure into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Cavitation Coefficient.

## Cavitation Coefficient Formula

CC = PD / (dIV)

Variables:

• CC is the Cavitation Coefficient ()
• PD is the pressure drop at which cavitation occurs
• dIV is the difference between the inlet and vapor pressure

To calculate Cavitation Coefficient, divide the pressure drop at which cavitation occurs by the difference between the inlet and vapor pressures.

## How to Calculate Cavitation Coefficient?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Cavitation Coefficient.

1. First, determine the pressure drop at which cavitation occurs.
2. Next, determine the difference between the inlet and vapor pressure.
3. Next, gather the formula from above = CC = PD / (dIV).
4. Finally, calculate the Cavitation Coefficient.
5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

pressure drop at which cavitation occurs = 40

difference between the inlet and vapor pressure = 203
