Thermodynamic Relationships

Referring to the thermodynamic discussion in Section100, the geometric and thermodynamic head relationships may now be equated.

As mentioned in Section100, the polytropic process is typically used for centrifugal compressors (rather than the adiabatic process).

Using the relationship for k, n, and hp, polytropic efficiency is:
