In order to calculate flow rate when using a differential head pressure device, the simplified formula is Flow = (coefficient)(square root of the differential pressure)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is why? Why the square root, can some explain this to me please? Thanks
