# How to Calculate and Solve for Constant for Fluid | Mineral Processing The image above represents constant for fluid.

To compute for constant for fluid, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Acceleration due to Gravity (g) and Fluid Viscosity (μ).

The formula for calculating constant for fluid:

k1 = g / 18μ

Where:

k1 = Constant for Fluid
g = Acceleration due to Gravity
μ = Fluid Viscosity

Let’s solve an example;
Find the constant for fluid when the acceleration due to gravity is 24 and the fluid viscosity is 6.

This implies that;

g = Acceleration due to Gravity = 24
μ = Fluid Viscosity = 6

k1 = g / 18μ
k1 = 24 / 18(6)
k1 = 24 / 108
k1 = 0.22

Therefore, the constant for fluid is 0.22.

Calculating the Acceleration due to Gravity when the Constant for Fluid and the Fluid Viscosity is Given.

g = k1 x 18μ

Where:

g = Acceleration due to Gravity
k1 = Constant for Fluid
μ = Fluid Viscosity

Let’s solve an example;
Find the acceleration due to gravity when the constant for fluid is 10 and the fluid viscosity is 2.

This implies that;

k1 = Constant for Fluid = 10
μ = Fluid Viscosity = 2

g = k1 x 18μ
g = 10 x 18 (2)
g = 10 x 36
g = 360

Therefore, the acceleration due to gravity is 360.

Calculating the Fluid Viscosity when the Constant for Fluid and the Acceleration due to Gravity is Given.

μ = g / k1 x 18

Where:

μ = Fluid Viscosity
k1 = Constant for Fluid
g = Acceleration due to Gravity

Let’s solve an example;
Find the fluid viscosity when the constant for fluid is 4 and the acceleration due to gravity is 54.

This implies that;

k1 = Constant for Fluid = 4
g = Acceleration due to Gravity = 54

μ = g / k1 x 18
μ = 54 / 4 x 18
μ = 54 / 72
μ = 0.75

Therefore, the fluid viscosity is 0.75.
