# Ammonia - Prandtl Number 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))
