flow equation

flow equation

[′flō i‚kwā·zhən]
(fluid mechanics)
Equation for the calculation of fluid (gas, vapor, liquid) flow through conduits or channels; consists of an interrelation of fluid properties (such as density or viscosity), environmental conditions (such as temperature or pressure), and conduit or channel geometry and conditions (such as diameter, cross-sectional shape, or surface roughness).
