In the previous chapters a simple model describing the flow in nozzle was explained. In cases where more refined calculations have to carried the gravity or other forces have to be taken into account. Flow in a vertical or horizontal nozzle are different because the gravity. The simplified models that suggests them-self are: friction and adiabatic, isothermal, seem the most applicable. These models can served as limiting cases for more realistic flow.
The effects of the gravity of the nozzle flow in two models isentropic and isothermal is analyzed here. The isothermal nozzle model is suitable in cases where the flow is relatively slow (small Eckert numbers) while as the isentropic model is more suitable for large Eckert numbers.
The two models produces slightly different equations. The equations results in slightly different conditions for the chocking and different chocking speed. Moreover, the working equations are also different and this author isn't aware of material in the literature which provides any working table for the gravity effect.
