Minor head loss in pipe and tube systems can be expressed as hminor_loss = v2/ 2 g where hminor_loss = minor head loss (m, ft) = minor loss coefficient v = flow velocity (m/s, ft/s) g = acceleration of gravity (m/s2, ft/s2) Minor loss coefficients for some of the most common used components in pipe and tube systems Minor Loss Coefficient -0.2 0.9 1.0 2.0 0.08 0.3 1.5 0.4 0.2 0.7 0.2 0.2 1.5 10 2 0.15 0.26 2.1 17 2 0.05 5.5 200 2.3 4.3 21 7
