Engineering Calculations in Excel

Excel is a powerful tool that can be used for a variety of engineering calculations. In this article, we will discuss some of the most common engineering calculations that can be performed in Excel.

1. Engineering Calculations in Excel

Excel can be used to perform a variety of engineering calculations. Some of the most common engineering calculations that can be performed in Excel are:

  • Thermodynamic Calculations
  • Fluid Mechanics Calculations
  • Structural Analysis Calculations
  • Electrical Engineering Calculations
  • Control Systems Calculations
  • Chemical Engineering Calculations

In this article, we will discuss how to perform some of the most common engineering calculations in Excel.

2. Thermodynamic Calculations in Excel

Thermodynamic calculations are used to calculate the properties of matter and energy. Some of the thermodynamic properties that can be calculated in Excel are:

    Specific Volume:
The specific volume is the volume occupied by one unit mass of a substance. It is usually expressed in m³/kg or ft³/lb. The specific volume can be calculated using the following formula:
Specific Volume = Volume / Mass


    Density:
Density is a measure of the mass per unit volume of a substance. It is usually expressed in kg/m³ or lb/ft³. The density can be calculated using the following formula:
Density = Mass / Volume


    Specific Gravity:
< font color = "#000000" > Specific gravity is a measure of the ratio of the density of a substance to the density of water at 4 & deg ; C . It is dimensionless . The specific gravity can be calculated using the following formula : < div align = "center" style = "text - align : center ;" >< font color = "#000000" >< strong >< em >< u >< font size = "4" > Specific Gravity = Density / Density Of Water @ 4 & deg ; C < br clear = "all" style = "clear : both ; "/ ,
