# Pressure Drop in Steam Pipe Calculator

The steam pipe is used to move the steam from boiler to cylinder. The loss of pressure during this process is called as the pressure drop which can be calculated based on the length and inside diameter of the pipe, flow rate and density of steam.

#### Formula:

dp = ((0.6753 * 10^{6} * q^{2} * l) * (1 + (91.4 / d))) / (ρ * d^{5})
**Where,**
dp = Pressure Drop
q = Steam Flow Rate
l = Length of Pipe
d = Pipe Inside Diameter
ρ = Steam Density
