flow rate
In physics and engineering, in particular fluid dynamics and hydrometry, the volumetric flow rate, is the volume of fluid which passes per unit time; usually represented by the symbol Q
the equation of continuity
A continuity equation in physics is an equation that describes the transport of some quantity
streamlines
Fluid flow is characterized by a velocity vector field in three-dimensional space, within the framework of continuum mechanics
pressure
Pressure is the force applied perpendicular to the surface of an object per unit area over which that force is distributed
surface tension
Surface tension is the elastic tendency of a fluid surface which makes it acquire the least surface area possible
