Default Simple question on multiple port lengths

Assuming the following equation gives the length port(s) in metric:
Lv = (23562.5*Dv^2*Np/(Fb^2*Vb))-(k*Dv)
(dv=diameter)

Does that mean Lv =
a) the total length of all ports?
or
b) the required length of each port?

eg. if Np=1 and Lv = 45cm for a given Fb, Vb and Dv, but the equation = 97cm when Np=2.... Does that mean each port should = 97cm in length? - or each port should add up to a total length of 97cm?

Also.... does each port have to be the same length (eg - could one be 60cm and the other 37cm - assuming the same diameter)?

Yours in simple minded confusion,
Dave.

I'm not sure about your first qestion, but it looks like it would be the lenght of each port.

Each port needs to be the same length.
