Mass Flow Rate

Mass flow rate is the average velocity of an areas density for flow.

Mass Flow Rate formula

\(\large{ \dot m_f = \rho v A   }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ \dot m_f }\) = mass flow rate

\(\large{ A }\) = area

\(\large{ d_i }\) = internal pipe diameter

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

\(\large{ \pi }\) = Pi

\(\large{ \rho }\)   (Greek symbol rho) = fluid density

\(\large{ v }\) = velocity

Solve for:

\(\large{ d_i = \sqrt { \frac { 4 Q }   { \pi v}   }   }\)

\(\large{ d_i = \sqrt { \frac { 4 \dot m_f}   { \pi \rho v}   }   }\)
