Enter the total pressure drop and the difference in incoming and static pressure into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Loss Coefficient.

## Loss Coefficient Formula

LC = PD/TSP

Variables:

• LC is the Loss Coefficient ()
• PD is the total pressure drop
• TSP is the difference in incoming and static pressure

To calculate Loss Coefficient, divide the total pressure drop by the difference in incoming and static pressure.

## How to Calculate Loss Coefficient?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Loss Coefficient.

1. First, determine the total pressure drop.
2. Next, determine the difference in incoming and static pressure.
3. Next, gather the formula from above = LC = PD/TSP.
4. Finally, calculate the Loss 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.

total pressure drop = 600

difference in incoming and static pressure = 200
