Ammonia - Prandtl Number vs. Temperature and Pressure

Figures and table with changes in Prandtl number for ammonia with changes in 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 Cp / k                           (1)

μ = absolute or dynamic viscosity (kg/m s, lbm /(ft h))
Cp = specific heat (J/kg K, Btu/(lbm oF))
k = thermal conductivity (W/m K, Btu/(h ft2oF/ft))

Below, Prandtl numbers for ammonia at varying temperatures and pressures are given in figures and table .
