Pressure drop thru copper tube

I have found a spreadsheet to calculate pressure drop in a system. I am really looking for a Simplified version for some bigger projects. Again, simplified is the key word.

I would like to be able to type in as variables:

Copper Tube Size


Flow rate

Pressure drop

It would be nice to change any parameter and see the resulting change with the other variables. I attended a copper clinic years ago and have a flow-rate, velocity, and pressure drop chart that I use almost daily. It would be nice if it were in spreadsheet form. I will post that later this evening after I scan it in.

Any thoughts would be helpful. Also, this might be great to have in "The Library".

I have job developing that will have large volumes of water that I need to calc the pressure drop which affects my flow rate, velocity, recovery time, and how many storage tanks I will need for peak conditions.
