for calculating the volumetric flow rate of a liquid coming out of a tube, I know that If the pipe is too short, the Hagen–Poiseuille equation may result in unphysically high flow rates; the flow is bounded by Bernoulli's principle

So, what exactly is the Volumetric Flow rate due to Bernoulli's principle ( the formula )?

Find the velocity using bernoulli's equation

Pressure + G.P.E per unit volume + K.E per unit volume = constant

and apply the equation for flow rate.

Flow rate = Area x Velocity

    $\begingroup$ So you mean if I change the cross section I can't have the same velocity ? But my question is the formula that gives me the relation between the volumetric flow rate and pressure and Area and Velocity $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It is the Bernoulli's equation that I have written in words. :) $\endgroup$

The equation you are looking for is derived on Wikipedia.
