Can anyone help me please, I have a pump that provides a given flow rate of water in gallons per minute but I need to equate this to a given pressure. I guess I need more information but what? pipe diameter? length of pipe run?

I know it is fairly easy to figure the velocity of the liquid traveling through the pump at a given flow rate, if yoyu know the area of a crossection of the pipe.
But the formula for calculating the pressure from the flow rate escapes me.
I found a site here: [url]http://www.precisionfluidpower.com/fluid_power_formulas.htm[/url]
They seem to sell products and specialize in the subject. You might try contacting a salesman there and see if they can provide you with the formula.
If you contact them, I'd love to hear what they say. I can do some more reasearch if they cant help you.
