# Carbon dioxide - Prandtl Number

## Figures and table showing changes in Prandtl number for carbon dioxide 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 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 **carbon dioxide** at varying temperatures and pressures are given in figures and table.
