Water Velocity Through Piping formulas

\(\large{ v_w = \frac{ 0.134 \; Q_w }{ 3600 \; \pi \; { \left( \frac {d}{24} \right) ^2  }   }   }\)   
\(\large{ v_w =  0.408 \; \frac{ Q_w }{ d^2 }   }\)  

Where:

\(\large{ v_w }\) = water velocity

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

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

\(\large{ Q_w }\) = water flow rate
