Froude Number Design Equations Formulas Calculator

Open Channel Flow - Fluid Mechanics - Hydraulics

Solving for flow velocity.

Inputs:

 Froude number (F) acceleration of gravity (g) meter/second^2 centimeter/second^2 foot/second^2 inch/second^2 kilometer/second^2 mile/second^2 millimeter/second^2 yard/second^2 mean depth (hm) meter attometer centimeter chain dekameter decimeter exameter femtometer foot gigameter hectometer inch kilometer light year link megameter micrometer micron mile millimeter nanometer petameter picometer rod terameter yard

Conversions:

 Froude number (F) = 0 = 0 acceleration of gravity (g) = 0 = 0 meter/second^2 mean depth (hm) = 0 = 0 meter

Solution:

 flow velocity (V) = HAS NOT BEEN CALCULATED
