. In an experiment similar to that of Darcy’s, the flow rate of water was observed to be 5.0cm3/min. If the
experiment were to be repeated with oil, what would be the flow rate for oil? The difference between the
upstream and downstream hydraulic gradients Δh are the same for both the experiments (measured with
