Description:

Poiseuille developed an equation in 1846 to describe the steady laminar flow of a Newtonian liquid in a narrow rigid glass tube. This equation can be used to predict how a change in one variable will affect the system, assuming a nondistensible system. An alternative name is the Hagen-Poiseuille equation.
