    In Centrifugal Pumps why low-pressure region creates bubbles as pressure drops below the vapour pressure

    Hello Pranjal, how are you? I hope you and your family are doing well!

    I really don't know a lot about the subject, but I did do a few researchers that might help you:


    I hope these can help you on your doubts! I'm sorry I couldn't help you even further.

    Best regards,

    It is very obvious.
    Since pressure drops below vapour pressure, boiling starts and hence the formation of bubbles.

    Yes, u are right
    Also considering the relationship btw pressure ,centifuge force,volume .
    As the centrifugal force is been expoilated out,the pressure reduce thereby increasing the formation of bubbles.
