## Flow Rate

Flow rate ( $$Q$$ ) measure the amount of fluid that flows in a given time past a specific point.

### Flow Rate formula

$$Q = \frac { \Delta V } { \Delta t }$$          $$flow \; rate \;=\; \frac { difference \; in \; volume } { difference \; in \; time }$$

Where:

$$Q$$ = flow rate

$$\Delta t$$ = time differential

$$\Delta V$$ = volume differential
