## User Guide

This tool will calculate the internal diameter of a round pipe or duct that a substance is flowing through, from the rate of volumetric flow and the speed of the flow. A range of conversion values for flow and diameter will also be displayed for each set of input parameters entered.

### Formula

The formula used by this calculator to calculate the internal pipe or duct diameter is:

ø = (Q / (v · π))^{½} · 2

Derived from:

A = Q / v

A = π · r²

r = ø / 2

#### Symbols

- Q = Volume flow rate
- v = Flow velocity
- A = Cross-sectional area
- r = Radius
- ø = Diameter

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

### Volumetric Flow Rate Required

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

### Flow Velocity Measured

Enter the speed that the substance is moving through the pipe or duct.

### Diameter Calculation

This is the internal diameter of a pipe or duct that would be required for a substance moving at the specified speed and volumetric flow rate.
