Equations - Fluids
These are the equations that you should know. Updated January 23rd.
This list is now complete.
|Flow Rate (speed)||
= Distance Travelled
Measured in m/s (meters per second)
|Flow Rate (quantity)||
= Volume of Fluid Passing a Specific Point
Measured in ml/s (millilitres per second)
Measured in g/ml or g/cm3 (grams per milliliter or grams per centimeter cubed)
|Force of Gravity||
= Mass x 9.8 N/kg
Measured in N (Newtons)
|Archimedes' Principle||The buoyant force acting on an object equals the weight of the fluid displaced by the object.|
Measured in Pa (Pascals)
Pressure exerted on a fluid is transferred uniformly throughout.
