I'm not sure how to clearly express my query, so I'll round up the gist of it. I understand that this is an entry level question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was told that, in order to calculate Volume Flow Rate (VFR), I would use these equations:

* Q = Velocity * Area [EQUATION 1]

* Q = Volume / Time [EQUATION 2]

Units: m^3 / s

Questions:

^Do I use both equations? Are they both deemed correct or only one and which one?

^Can you give an example problem or scenario in which I would use the appropriate equation?
