### Flow Coefficient - Cv - for Liquids (Metric)

Cv = 11.6 q (SG / ΔP)1/2         (1b)

where

q = water flow (m3/h)

SG = specific gravity (1 for water)

ΔP = pressure drop (kPa)

For liquids the flow coefficient - Cv - expresses the flow capacity in gallons per minute (GPM) of 60oF water with a pressure drop of 1 psi (lb/in2).

### Flow Coefficient - Cv - for Air and other Gases

Cv = q [SG (T + 460)]1/2/ [1360 (dp po)1/2]

where

dp = (pi - po)

po = outlet gas absolute pressure (psia)
