I want to know how many Watts are necessary to maintain airflow in my solution.
The end result: To find a pump that will provide adequate vacuum and airflow, without being over-sized.

Ok, here it is in question format.
Given that my input pressure is 100 kPa and my output pressure is 30 kPa. What CEL formula would I use to solve for power required at the outlet to maintain this pressure differential?

Power = Volume Flow rate times pressure difference.
