Fluid Mechanics: Bernoulli's Equation

Bernoulli's Equation

The Bernoulli's equation is a combination of static pressure and dynamic pressure. This means that it can be used to find fluid head as well as fluid velocity. To view Bernoulli's equation refer to equation 1.

Bernoulli's Equation (1)

P = Pressure

ρ = Density

v = Velocity

γ = Specific Weight

z = Fluid Height

While using Bernoulli's equation the following assumptions are made. First, viscous effects are assumed negligible. Next, the fluid has to have a steady flow, and the fluid should be considered incompressible. Finally, the fluid particles must follow a stream line.
