I would like to calculate the rate at which fluid(oil) is transferred from one chamber to the other.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Note the orifices is in the range of 0.0030 to 0.0760 in i'm wondering if the very small size of this hole requires any special consideration.

I realize more info such as oil density and dimensions are required for a exact solution, however I would like to determine a general solution into which I can substitute these values.

Any hints to get me on the correct path or even better a sample calculation would appreciated.

Note this is not a homework question.
