What Is A Steam Trap? A steam trap is an essential element of a steam distribution piping system. As steam flows through a pipe, it cools off due to heat losses and converts into hot water; this hot water is called condensate. The function of a steam trap is to bleed off hot water so that only steam remains in the system. In addition to condensate removal, a steam trap also...

a weird error.

This may help those who are questioning "Why does it work?"

In the Wikipedia you can read about the Lambert W function. Here's a...

You will see that after step 2, the accuracy will be amazing. I already knew the solution to the Re and Rr would give 1/sqrt(f) about 4, so I plotted initial guesses of from -4 (that is a...
