In a 6-inch diameter pipe, what is the velocity of the water at 400 GPM?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

There are 231 cubic inches in a gallon, and the cross sectional area of the pipe is pi*6^2 = 36pi, therefore:

(231 in^3 / gal)(400gal / min)(1 / 36pi in^2) = 817 inches per minute
