Introduction to Stream Discharge

Stream discharge is calculated by multiplying the cross-sectional area of the stream by the velocity of the water flow. In this formula, Q represents the stream discharge, A is the cross-sectional area of the stream, and V is the velocity of the water flow. The result is expressed in cubic meters per second (m3/s) or cubic feet per second (ft3/s) depending on the units used for area and velocity.

Data validation

The numbers should be greater than zero.


This calculator takes into account the cross-sectional area and velocity of a stream and outputs its discharge. It is not specific to a particular unit of measurement.
