    Given two identical orifices, one with air flowing through and one with water flowing through,would the flow coefficient(K) be the same?

    If you assume the same flow rate...then they are ROUGHLY the same because the difference between specific gravity of air and water is about .18 g/L (air is ~ 1.18 g/L).
