What is the force of the water flowing vertically onto a paddle from a 20-mm diameter pipe and a flow rate of one liter per second and does the force double if the flow rate is doubled?

already exists.

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

You need to know the distance from the pipe to the paddle to ascertain the velocity. Force = mass of water x square of the velocity assuming it is stopping at the paddle. The force would quadruple if it were following twice as fast since the force is proportional to the velocity squared.

What is the difference between a single check valve and a double one and can you fit one in the hot water pipe to a shower to prevent cross flow.?

 Answer   A double check valve is merely two single check valves in close series.   This means that under negative pressure the water that momentarily bypasses  

How do you calculate pipe diameter given flow rate and pressure?

The simplest way to calculate the pipe diameter would be using flow rate & velocity in the formula, diameter=root((4*Flow)/(Pi*Velocity)).  In order to find the velocity from

Do the length of pipe effect the flow rate of water?

Stepping down the size of the pipe into a smaller one in fact WILL  NOT GIVE MORE PRESSURE! The smaller the size of the pipe, the less  water it can carry, and ultimatley di

What is the flow rate of water through a 20 inch pipe at 2500 psi?

For laminar flow? For a full pipe? for a 3/4-full pipe? For a 1/2-full pipe? It all makes quite a difference. Please repost your question with a little more information. It wo
