Δ p=P2P1
Enter the unknown value as ‘x’.

Enter Inlet Pressure(P1)= psia

Enter Outlet Pressure(P2)= psia

Flow Coefficient for Regulators and Valves(Cv)=

Enter Liquid Flow(QL)= GPM

x =

Water Flow Calculator is a free online tool that displays the flow of water for the given pressure. BYJU’S online water flow calculator tool performs the calculation faster, and it displays the liquid flow rate in a fraction of seconds.

## How to Use the Water Flow Calculator?

The procedure to use the water flow calculator is as follows:

Step 1: Enter the inlet pressure, outlet pressure, flow coefficient and x for the unknown value in the input field

Step 2: Now click the button “Calculate x” to get the water flow

Step 3: Finally, the water flow rate will be displayed in the output field

### What is Meant by Water Flow?

The movement of liquid is generally called the “flow”. In fluid dynamics, fluid flow is a concept that describes how the fluid behaves and how they interact with the surrounding medium. It means how the liquid/water is moving through the pipe or any other channel. Also, the flow of liquid may be steady or unsteady. We can say that the flow is steady if all the properties of flow are independent of time. Otherwise, the flow is unsteady. The flow of liquid can be classified majorly into two types, such as laminar flow and turbulent flow. The difference between laminar and turbulent flow is that the laminar flow is smoother, whereas the turbulent flow is more chaotic. If the viscosity of any liquid is higher, then we can say that the flow is laminar.
