Air - Prandtl Number

Prandtl number for air vs. temperature and pressure.

The Prandtl Number - Pr - is a dimensionless number approximating the ratio of momentum diffusivity (kinematic viscosity) to thermal diffusivity - and is often used in heat transfer and free and forced convection calculations.

The Prandtl number can for calculations be expressed as

Pr =  μ c p / k                           (1)

where
μ = absolute or dynamic viscosity [kg/(m s)], [lb m /(ft h)]
c p = specific heat [J/(kg K)], [Btu/(lb m o F)]
k = thermal conductivity [W/(m K)], [Btu/(h ft 2 o F/ft)]

Below, Prandtl numbers for air at varying temperatures and pressures are given in figures and tables .
