## Summary:

- flow rate, water, drips, drop, surface tension

hello

i have a drip tube with water dripping and when i increase the flow rate or frequency of drips they get bigger/more massive.

i see the equation mass x gravity = 3.14(tube diameter)(surface tension)

my mass is changing but not gravity, 3.14 or tube diameter so surface tension must be related to flow rate but I cant find anything online on how to figure this out.

conversely I have a known flow rate and mass and want to determine tube diameter but unsure how to get it as it appears surface tension must be related to flow rate but I dont know how
