hydraulic gradient flow rateHydraulic 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 \(\large{dimensionless}\)
