- flow rate of oxygen through a pipe from a pressurized cylinder to atmospheric pressure

I'm struggling with calculating the flow rate for an oxygen system.

There is a pressurised cylinder.

This then joins onto a pressure reducer.

Then travels down a length of pipe which branches off to 4 exits there is no restrictions on the exits it just goes to atmospheric pressure.

I am yet to find the specific values for each part of the system however, when i find out i will know the pressure in the cylinder, the volume of the cyclinder, the pressure that it is reduced to, the diameter of the pipe, and the length of the pipe.

im only looking for a rough answer to compare to other methods and testing as the system will also be modeled in ansys

any help would be appreciated.
