About Coefficient of Velocity Calculator (Formula)

The Coefficient of Velocity Calculator is a tool used to determine the coefficient of velocity in fluid dynamics. The coefficient of velocity represents the ratio between the actual velocity of a fluid and the theoretical velocity of the fluid as it passes through a specific point.

The formula used to calculate the coefficient of velocity is:

Cv = √(x^2 / (4 * y * h))


  • Cv is the coefficient of velocity
  • x is the horizontal distance
  • y is the vertical distance
  • h is the head of water

The formula involves taking the square root of the ratio of the squared horizontal distance to four times the vertical distance multiplied by the head of water.

By inputting the values of the horizontal distance, vertical distance, and head of water into the calculator, it will provide the coefficient of velocity as the output.
