Volumetric Flow Rate

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 or you could say the actual volume flow.

 

Volumetric flow rate formula

\(\large{ Q = A_c \; v }\)
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ Q }\) = volumetric flow rate \(\large{\frac{ft^3}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m^3}{s}}\)
\(\large{ A_c }\) = area cross-section \(\large{ft^2}\) \(\large{m^2}\)
\(\large{ v }\) = velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\)
