The data you have stated are not enough for computing steam flow. You have to install a flowmeter orifice mounted in flanges. The differential head measured in an orifice is what is required for flow measurements either for steam, water or any other liquid. Please go to a reference book on Flowmeter Engineering.

You should probably go back and look at the question again. What you've stated here makes no sense and is missing some crucial data.
