Poiseuille’s Law | Definition, Formula – Hydrodynamics

Poiseuille’s Law Definition:
The law of Poiseuille states that the flow of liquid depends on the following variables such as the length of the tube(L), radius (r), pressure gradient (∆P) and the viscosity of the fluid (η) in accordance with their relationship.

We are giving a detailed and clear sheet on all Physics Notes that are very useful to understand the Basic Physics Concepts.

Poiseuille’s Law | Definition, Formula – Hydrodynamics

Poiseuille’s Law Formula:
The rate of flow (u) of liquid through a horizontal pipe for steady flow is given by

v = \(\frac{\pi}{8} \frac{p r^{4}}{\eta l}\)

p = pressure difference across the two ends of the tube,
r = radius of the tube,
η = coefficient of viscosity,
l = length of the tube.

In physics, hydrodynamics of fluid dynamics explains the mechanism of fluid such as flow of liquids and gases. It has a wide range of applications such as evaluating forces and momentum on aircraft, prediction of weather, etc.
