The Flow Rate calculator computes the flow rate based on a the total volume of flow and the duration it took to accumulate the volume.

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:

  • (V) This is the total volume
  • (D) This is the duration of time that the flow created the volume

Flow Rate (FR): The calculator returns the flow rate in gallons per minute.  However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

The Math / Science

The formula for flow rate is:

        FR = V / D

where:

  • FR = Flow rate
  • V = Total Volume
  • D = Duration required to accumulate volume
