Flow Rate

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

flow rate 1Flow rate, abbreviated as Q, measure the amount of fluid that flows in a given time past a specific point.

Flow Rate formula

\(\large{ Q =  A \; v  }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ Q }\) = flow rate

\(\large{ A }\) = area

\(\large{ v }\) = velocity

Solve for:

\(\large{ A =  \frac { Q }  { v  }   }\)

\(\large{ v =  \frac { Q }  { A  }   }\)
