Hydraulics — Fluids
Hydraulics is a field of applied science and engineering dealing with the mechanical properties of liquids. Hydraulics focuses on the engineering uses of fluid properties. In fluid power, hydraulics is used for the generation, control, and transmission of power by the use of pressurized liquids. Fluid mechanics is the branch of physics that studies fluids and the forces on them. Fluid mechanics can be divided into fluid statics, the study of fluids at rest; fluid kinematics, the study of fluids in motion; and fluid dynamics, the study of the effect of forces on fluid motion.
Mass Flow Rate
In physics and engineering, mass flow rate is the mass of a substance which passes through a given surface per unit of time.
Its unit is kilogram per second (kg/s) in SI units, and slug per second or pound per second in US customary and British Imperial units. Mass flow rate is measured by mass flow meters, also known as inertial flow meters.
Using the Mass Flow Rate Converter
This online unit converter allows quick and accurate conversion between many units of measure, from one system to another. The Unit Conversion page provides a solution for engineers, translators, and for anyone whose activities require working with quantities measured in different units.
You can use this online converter to convert between several hundred units (including metric, British and American) in 76 categories, or several thousand pairs including acceleration, area, electrical, energy, force, length, light, mass, mass flow, density, specific volume, power, pressure, stress, temperature, time, torque, velocity, viscosity, volume and capacity, volume flow, and more.
Note: Integers (numbers without a decimal period or exponent notation) are considered accurate up to 15 digits and the maximum number of digits after the decimal point is 10.
In this calculator, E notation is used to represent numbers that are too small or too large. E notation is an alternative format of the scientific notation a · 10x. For example: 1,103,000 = 1.103 · 106 = 1.103E+6. Here E (from exponent) represents “· 10^”, that is “times ten raised to the power of”. E-notation is commonly used in calculators and by scientists, mathematicians and engineers.
- Select the unit to convert from in the left box containing the list of units.
- Select the unit to convert to in the right box containing the list of units.
- Enter the value (for example “15”) into the left From box.
- The result will appear in the Result box and in the To box.
- Alternatively, you can enter the value into the right To box and read the result of conversion in the From and Result boxes.
