Volumetric Flow Rateflow volumetric

Volumetric flow rate ( \(Q\) or \(V\) ) (also called flow rate) is the amount of fluid that flows in a given time past a specific point.

Volumetric Flow Rate formula

\(\large{ Q = A v }\)         

\(\large{ Q = \frac {V} {t} }\)        

\(\large{ Q = k i A }\)         


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

\(\large{ A }\) = cross section area

\(\large{ i }\) = hydraulic gradient

\(\large{ k }\) = hydraulic conductivity

\(\large{ t }\) = time

\(\large{ v }\) = flow velocity

\(\large{ V }\) = area volume
