I am trying to find an equation to find the pressure of a fluid as it leaves a hypodermic needle when all I have is the diameter of the hole the fluid is discharging from and the flow rate. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I think this should be simple but I have spent a couple of hours trying figure this out. I would like to find out what the pressure would be going into say an IV line of the same dimension as the hole of the syringe if that makes sense. I appreciate any ideas. Thanks for your time.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
