flow rate surface tension
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
