The editable sheet below (this sheet may also be opened in a new tab) allows you to calculate the friction loss in a pipe. This sheet illustrates the new feature in that allows you to hide unused rows in a table. This makes working with large tables easier since they will take up less vertical space in the sheet. Also, this sheet shows how U.S. customary and metric units can be mixed and matched in the same sheet. Additionally, since all calculations are performed internally in SI fundamental units, the gravitational constant correction does not need to be used when inputting and outputting values using U.S customary units.
