    This might be about Bernoulli's equation for fluid flow.

    Read about the forms of the equation first, then example 1 in the following link calculates the pressure in a hose given change in flow speed. You could then find flow rate from flow speed * cross sectional area of nozzle

    That Q is the reverse of what you wanted, but you may be able to select the form of the B equation that includes the known info that applies to your problem, and then use the 25 psi hose pressure to relate to flow speed and then rate.

    depends on the size of the hose, or the nozzle, if there is one.
