Hydraulic conductivity, symbolically represented as K, is a property of vascular plants, soils and rocks, that describes the ease with which a fluid (usually water) can move through pore spaces or fractures.

Where

• Q is the total quantity of water for constant head
• i is the hydraulic gradient
• A is the cross section area (perpendicular to flow)
• t_E elapsed time during falling head
