How To Calculate Flow Rate Of Water In A Pipe / Calculating Water Discharge In A Pipe


In this article, we explained how to calculate the water flow rate or discharge in the pipe as given below.

Flow Rate Of Water In A Pipe


Example Given data:

The velocity of water in pipe = 6m/sec (V).

In this article, We explained How To Calculate the Flow Rate Of Water In A Pipe / Calculating Water Discharge In A Pipe - with the example given data 

Inner diameter of pipe = 75mm = 0.075m (d).

 

Discharge or flow rate of water (Q) = Area of pipe (Sectional) (A) × velocity (V)

 

The sectional area of pipe A = πr2

 

Where,

 

r= inner radius of the pipe

 

radius = [diameter / 2]

 

Therefore,  

r = d ÷ 2 =0.075m / 2 = 0.0375m.

 

A = π × (0.0375)2 = 3.142 × 0.00140625= 0.0044184375 sqm.

 

Flow rate or discharge of water

 

  Q = V × A

 

      = 6m/sec × 0.0044184375sqm

 

      = 0.026510625 m3/sec

As we know, 1cum = 1000 litre.

 

Therefore,

Flow rate or discharge of water = 0.026510625 m3/sec x 1000

Flow rate or discharge of water = 26.510625 litre/sec

  2. With the Time and Materials strategy; the plumber charges a little "Administration Expense" to prepare to the gig, an hourly rate while he is at work, and anything that materials were utilized to fix the plumbing.
