What is Flow Rate and Why is it Important in a Water Dispenser?

    1. Flow rate refers to the amount of liquid that flows through a given cross-sectional area within a particular time.
    2. Flow rate is an important factor considered in various home machines and appliances including;
        1. Water dispensers
        2. Showers
        3. Refrigerator dispensers
        4. Washing machines
    3. The cross-sectional area of the water tube is constant, therefore, the interest is how much water passes through it and the time taken.
    4. Flow rate determines how fast the dispenser fills up your glass, which adds to its overall efficiency.
    5. Dispensers have specified cold and hot water flow rates.
    6. The hot flow rate is higher than the cold flow rate because the heat energy within water molecules makes them travel faster than cold molecules.
