For a physics project I'm investigating the effects on the flow rate of fluids. I'm going to find a relationship between orifice diameter and flow rate (keeping things simple I'll assume it's a circular orifice for a cylindrical can). For the empirical data I obtain, I've gotta have theoretical support. If there's a genius out there who could tell me what law or relationship I need then I'd be very grateful.

$$a_1v_1=a_2v_2$$
$$Flow Rate=Dav$$ Where D is density.
And look up "Bernoulli's Equation"
