Enter the total pressure and the specific gravity of the fluid into the calculator to convert the pressure to head.
Pressure to Head Formula
The following formula is used to convert a pressure to head.
h = p / .433*SG
- Where h is the head (ft)
- p is the pressure (psi)
- SG is the specific gravity of the fluid.
Pressure to Head Definition
Converting a pressure into a head is done through the division of the pressure of the specific gravity of the fluid.
Pressure to Head Example
How to convert pressure to head?
- First, determine the pressure.
Measure the total pressure in PSI.
- Next, determine the specific gravity.
Calculate or measure the specific gravity of the fluid.
- Finally, calculate the head.
Calculate the head in feet using the equation above.
A head is defined as the the total height of a liquid column that exerts a certain pressure on the base of the liquid container by the fluid.
