    Re: port formula

    heres the response i got. someone help me interpert.
    The speed of sound in air @ 18 degrees centigrade is 1.347*10^4 inches per second that value squared is 1.815*10^8 that squared value divided by 4*pi is 1.45*10^7. The particular equation he is referring to assumes that the port diameter is in inches. The equation you may be using could assume the port diameter is in some other type of unit.

    Re: port formula

    there's two equations I've found:

    Lv= [(1.463*10^7*R^2) / (Fb^2 x Vb)] - 1.463*R

    and

    Lv = Av*1.84*10^8/[Vb*1728*(Fb/0.159)^2] - 0.823*sqrt(Av)


    so your 1.84 is not in the same context as the 1.463 and shouldn't be considered "right" over a different system of equations.



    best sig of all time
