a.lone is on a distinguished road
I am going to add a pressure drop term to the momentum equation.

The pressure drop term will be expressed as major loss + minor loss.

Is the viscosity term of the momentum equation changed by the major loss term of the pressure drop since there is a viscosity in the friction factor of the major loss?

I think the viscous term in the friction factor and the momentum term in the momentum equation are the same
