# Flow Rate

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Flow 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:

$$\large{ A = \frac { Q } { v } }$$

$$\large{ v = \frac { Q } { A } }$$
