Flow rate / pressure / spray

  1. Feb 20, 2013 #1
    Hi, I'm designing a system that spray water into air.

    I'm wondering how I should go finding out the relationship between the flow rate and distance of travel of the water droplet in air.
    If I am spraying the water going the same direction as the wind, how much would the velocity of the water pick up?

    About spraying the water at a particular flow rate, is that normally created by the pressure of a pump, if not then what would dictate the flow rate?

    Sorry those might be badly phrased question, but could anyone point me to a general direction so I can study more on the topic before asking better questions?

    Thank you.
