Hydraulic gradient flow rate measure the amount of fluid that flows in a given time past a specific.

## Hydraulic Gradient Flow Rate fromula

 $$\large{ Q = k \; i \; A_c }$$

### Where:

 Units English Metric $$\large{ Q }$$ = flow rate $$\large{\frac{ft^3}{sec}}$$ $$\large{\frac{m^3}{s}}$$ $$\large{ A_c }$$ = area cross-section of flow $$\large{ in^2 }$$ $$\large{ mm^2 }$$ $$\large{ k }$$ = hydraulic conductivity $$\large{\frac{ft}{day}}$$ $$\large{\frac{m}{day}}$$ $$\large{ i }$$ = hydraulic gradient $$\large{dimensionless}$$
