# Flow Through a Pipe Calculation

#### BrownPaperBag

Hello,
How do we calculate the Flow of an incompressible fluid through a pipe, given only the Pipe inside Diameter of 10.07 inches and Head Pressure of 14 inches?

Note the Magnifying Glass at the top of this page. Move the cursor to it and click on it, Then, go to "Search" and type in "Bernoulli"!
Wikipedia is also an excellent reference.

Try Bernoulli's equation. Many valve, flowmeter suppliers have sizing software that will help.

Flow meters will help.

To calculate the pressure, you need to know what is down stream.

Read through some of the articles. Still haven't been able to figure it out.

Your question is not clear. For example, does your term Head mean Pressure, p=F/A, for Force per Unit of Area! If so, then p must be expressed in Standard Units, better known as SI units! Similar to Hands to express the height of a horse!
Secondly, you must consider at least two effects. For example, Try to arrange your question along the lines "What is... if... !

I'm talking about static pressure (Static head pressure) in inches of Water Column. The question is structured pretty simple.
