## User Guide

This tool will calculate the cross-sectional area that a substance is flowing through from the rate of volume flow and the speed of the flow. A range of conversion values for flow and area will also be displayed for each set of input parameters entered.

### Formula

The formula used by this calculator to calculate the cross-sectional flow area is:

A = Q / v

#### Symbols

- A = Cross-sectional area
- Q = Volumetric flow rate
- v = Flow velocity

n.b. This formula assumes uniform flow conditions within the entire cross-sectional area, without any friction losses near to surfaces.

### Volumetric Flow Rate Required

Enter the quantity of volume which will flow through per unit of time.

### Flow Velocity Measured

Enter the speed that the substance is moving through the flow area.

### Cross-Sectional Area Calculation

This is the cross-sectional area that would be needed for a substance moving at the specified speed and rate of volumetric flow.
