Default FAN BC

Hi, I'm trying to simulate a propeller using fan bc. what I confuse is about the post processing.

if i input the pressure drop (delta p) and the velocity (V) at the inlet, what will be the output?

if the output is thrust (T), aren't we able to count T = delta p x A (disk area) directly. I think i missed something here.

Thank you in advance.

Sheila
