velocity gradientVelocity gradient, abbreviated as \(\nu\) (Greek symbol nu), is how the velocity of a fluid changes between parallel planes or different points within the fluid.

 

Velocity gradient formula

\(\large{ \nu = \frac { v } { l } \large }\) 

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ \nu }\)   (Greek symbol nu) = velocity gradient \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\)
\(\large{ l }\) = distance \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
\(\large{ v }\) = velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\)
