i have got a problem with a calculation involving a filter, i hope you all with lend me a helping hand.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

to calculate a diameter of a cylinder is rather easy, but how to determine the size of the water filter knowing only the flow rate of the pipe, diameter of the piping and the pressure of the inlet water

i hope there will be a formula to calculate it to make it easier.
