## How do you calculate average CP?

Cp is an index used to assess the width of the process spread in comparison to the width of the specification. It is calculated by dividing the allowable spread by the actual spread. The allowable spread is the difference between the upper and lower specification limits.

## What is the CP of water?

Specific Heat of Water For liquid at room temperature and pressure, the value of specific heat capacity (Cp) is approximately 4.2 J/g°C. This implies that it takes 4.2 joules of energy to raise 1 gram of water by 1 degree Celsius. This value for Cp is actually quite large.

## What is the CV of water?

In the U.S. system of units, the Cv coefficient is the number of U.S. gallons per minute of water that will pass through a given orifice area at a pressure drop of 1 PSI. An orifice or valve passage which has a Cv coefficient of 1.00 will pass 1 GPM of water (specific gravity 1.0) with a pressure drop of 1 PSI.
