(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

ive done the darcy experiment in the lab already and have the data, the question asks to calculate the hydraulic conductivity,K. ive done one already and im just looking for confirmation that ive done it correctly because ive never used this equation before. I know im finding K.

2. Relevant equations

darcy equation Q=KiA

3. The attempt at a solution

so one set of data that i have is:

dl= 0.418 m

volume= 14 mL

time= 10 seconds

dh= 0.34 m

diameter of cylinder is 6.3 cm

and heres what ive done with it.

K=Q/iA

= 1.4mL/s / (0.81)(31.17cm^2)

= 0.055

as i said im not really sure if ive done this correctly because ive never used darcy's equation. also could someone also help me out with the units please?
