$A.q=(dii2)2⋅π$$U=(dii2)⋅2π$$deq=4⋅A.qU$
$A.q=(5,5mm2)2⋅π$$U=(5,5mm2)⋅2π$$deq=4⋅23,76mm217,28mm$

Since the warm water flows through the inner pipe, the equivalent diameter in the experiment corresponds to the inner diameter of the inner pipe deq= dii= 5.5 mm. This calculation and that of the wetted area is not absolutely necessary.
