# Propane - Prandtl Number vs. Temperature and Pressure

## Figures and tables with Prandtl Number of liquid and gaseous propane at varying temperarure and pressure, SI and Imperial units.

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)

where
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 ft2 oF/ft)]

Below, Prandtl numbers of propane at varying temperatures and saturation pressure, as well as 1, 10 and 100 bara (14.5, 145 and 1450 psia) are given in figures and tables.
