flow volumetricVolumetric flow rate, abbreviated as Q, also called flow rate, is the amount of fluid that flows in a given time past a specific point.

 

Volumetric Flow Rate formulas

\(\large{ Q = A_c \; v }\)   
\(\large{ Q = \frac {V} {t} }\)   
\(\large{ Q = k \; i \; A_c }\)  
\(\large{ Q = \frac{\pi}{4} \; d \;  \bar {v}  }\)  

Where:

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

\(\large{ A_c }\) = area cross-section

\(\large{ \bar {v}  }\) = average velocity

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

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

\(\large{ d }\) = inside diameter of pipe

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

\(\large{ t }\) = time

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

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