where is the enthalpy if the flow was isentropic. The actual energy that was used is
The efficiency can be defined as
The typical efficiency of nozzle is ranged between 0.9 to 0.99. In the literature some define also velocity coefficient as the ratio of the actual velocity to the ideal velocity,
There is another less used definition which referred as the coefficient of discharge as the ratio of the actual mass rate to the ideal mass flow rate.
