# Flocculation Power Formula

Find the power required to flocculate the water to remove the impurities from the waste water using the flocculation power formula.

#### Formula:

P = G2* u *V

Where,

u = Dynamic Viscosity
V = Flocculation Tank Volume
P = Power

Flocculation is very important in water treatment process where all the impurities forms flocks which can be removed to get a purified water. Since all the non treated water contains impurity it is very important to remove the impurities from the water.
What is the purpose of flocculation in water treatment?: All the particles which are the impurities in the water stick together since it has neutral charge. These form a lump like substance which is called as flocks. These flocks forms on the top surface of the water and can be removed to get purified water.
The flocculation power formula is the product of squared velocity gradient, dynamic viscosity and flocculation tank volume. Find the power required to flocculate the impurities in the waste water using the flocculation design equation.
