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 ; "/ ,
