Fluid flow in pipe.
I have what I'm sure is an easy question for a maths genius. However I need to know the answer for an insurance claim:-
"How much water in litres will flow through a 20mm pipe in one hour with the water pressure at 3 bar"
Any answers will be much appreciated.
p.s. I hope I've posted this in the right section
You might be able to find a table somewhere that gives flow rates for pipes of various sizes and various pressures. Once you get that, you just have to convert the units.
I think you need to know the length of the pipe. The water will flow more slowly through a longer pipe, right?
If you can't find a flow rate online, I think it's possible to calculate it. You'd need someone who knows more about fluid dynamics than I do.
Thanks for stepping in with the formula I needed.
