Equivalent Diameter when Flow in Rectangular Duct Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Equivalent Diameter = (4*Length of Rectangle*Breadth of Rectangle)/(2*(Length of Rectangle+Breadth of Rectangle))
De = (4*L*B)/(2*(L+B))
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Equivalent Diameter - (Measured in Meter) - Equivalent Diameter of an irregularly shaped object is the diameter of a sphere of equivalent volume.
Length of Rectangle - (Measured in Meter) - Length of rectangle is the total distance from one end to other end, length is the longest side of rectangle.
Breadth of Rectangle - (Measured in Meter) - Breadth of Rectangle is the distance from one end to the other which is perpendicular to the length.
