Volumetric Flow Rate

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

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 formula

(Eq. 1)  \(\large{ Q = A \; v }\)         

(Eq. 2)  \(\large{ Q = \frac {V} {t} }\)        

(Eq. 3)  \(\large{ Q = k \; i \; A }\)         

Where:

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

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

\(\large{ A }\) = cross section area

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

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

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

\(\large{ t }\) = time
