Water flow through a perforated plate

  1. Feb 28, 2016 #1
    I'm seeking the formula to calculate how water moves from one tank into another through a perforated plate driven by waterlevel compensation. I found the calculation for the discharge of water through submerged orifices, but I think the calculation does not include that holes, one above the other, have different gravity pressures and therefore different waterflows, also depending on the size of the hole. I want similar water discharge through each hole, so I have to adjust the hole size from top to bottom hole...or?
    I'm not an expert in physics, mechanics, fluid dynamics etc., so I'm sorry if the diction is not quite right.
    Please don't hesitate to ask when my description is to rudimental.
