I've never been good at converting units :( lol so had to ask my brother. He told me that distance x distance = distance^2 = area, and distance x distance x distance = distance^2 x distance = distance^3 = volume. Gotta love public school for never been taught that... geesh (obviously I've done the equations and stuff, just never been told it that way/that simple before). Knowing that makes figuring out the equation much easier.

Flow rate = velocity x CSA = 20 cm/sec * 2cm^2 = 40cm^3/sec. To convert to L/min, just multiply: 40cm^3/sec X 60 sec/min X 1L/100cm^3 = 240 L/100 min = 2.4 L/min

Hope this helped!

to all my public school peeps out there (and not the nice public schools in rich areas, the real public schools)... we made it!

Just in case that lovely little equation provided by @keycompany wasn't quite enough for you, here's a link to a more complete explanation by Kahn Academy. Helped me, when I looked at the equation and said, *whaaaa?*

Flow Rate = Velocity x Cross-Sectional Area

2 cm^2 x 20 cm/sec x 60 sec/min x 1 L/1,000 cm^3 = 2.4 L/min

1,000 cm^3 = 1 L
