Python, like most computer languages doesn't directly support that sort
of operation, one key point here is that in that context = means assign,
or change to, and implies that the name on the left takes on the value
to the right.

There may be a library somewhere that allows you to pass
"flowrate=veloctiy*area" (note, changed to a string) and the values for
flowrate and area and it solves for veloctiy.

Or a library where you do something like

def flowrate_fun(veloctiy):

??? return veloctiy*area

?veloctiy = solve(flowrate_fun, flowrate)

i.e. you pass a function and it finds what input make the function have
a give value.
