When the pipe flow is laminar, it can be shown (not here) that by recognizing that as Reynolds number Therefore, frictional factor is a function of the Reynolds number Similarly, for a turbulent flow, f = function of Reynolds number also

Another parameter that influences the friction is the surface roughness as relativeto the pipe diameter D Such that D Pipe frictional factor is a function of pipe Reynolds number and the relative roughness of pipe. This relation is sketched in the Moody diagram as shown in the following page. The diagram shows f as a function of the Reynolds number (Re), with a series of parametric curves related to the relative roughness D f VD VD f f F f F = = = = = F H I K F H I K 64 64 m r r m e e e , Re , Re , (Re) .
