Bernoulli Equation Calculator (Mass Flow Rate)
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is mass flow rate unit?
- The mass flow rate is the mass of a substance that passes per unit of time. It is measured in kilogram per second units.
How do you calculate a flow rate?
- To calculate a flow rate use the formula Q = V/t, where V is the volume and t is the time, or by using the formula Q = A×v, where A is the cross-sectional area at a point in the path of the flow and v is the velocity of the liquid.
What is the basic Bernoulli principle?
- Bernoulli's principle states that an increase in the speed of a fluid (liquid or gas) occurs simultaneously with a decrease in static pressure or a decrease in the fluid's potential energy. Within a horizontal flow of fluid through a pipe, points of higher fluid speed will have less pressure than points of slower fluid speed.
