Velocity of Water Through Piping

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff. Posted in Fluid Mechanics

formula

\(v_w = \frac { Q_w }    { 3600 \pi  { \left( \frac {d}{2} \right) ^2  }   } \)

\(v_w = \frac { 0.4085 \; \cdot \; Q_w}    {  d^2  }   \)

Where:

\(v_w\) = velocity of water

\(Q_w\) = flow rate of water

\(\pi\) = Pi

\(d\) = pipe inner diameter
