Here's a silly question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If I'm comparing two different sizes of hose, using the same flow rate in gpm, how do I calculate the pressure drops through each for comparison?

I'm considering using hoses with interior diameter .438 and .688, each with a length of 5 inches.
