TOPIC EXPERIMENT : BERNOULLI THEOREM
INTRO$UCTION :
9his e.periment is carried out to investigate the validility of /ernoulli0s theorem
when applied to the steady flow of water in tapered duct and total pressure heads
in a rigid convergent;divergent tube of known geometry for range of steady flow
rates , 9he /ernoulli0s theorem relates the pressure , velocity and elevation in a
moving fluid < li1uid or gases = , the compressibility and viscosity < #nternal friction =
which are negligible and the flow of which is steady , or laminar ,
/ernoulli>s principle can be applied to various types of fluid flow, resulting in what is
loosely denoted as /ernoulli>s e1uation, #n fact, there are different forms of the
/ernoulli e1uation for different types of flow, 9he simple form of /ernoulli>s
principle is valid for incompressible flows <e,g, most li1uid flows= and also for
compressible flows <e,g, gases= moving at low ?ach numbers <usually less than
4,3=, ?ore advanced forms may in some cases be applied to compressible flows at
higher ?ach numbers <see the derivations of the /ernoulli e1uation=, /ernoulli>s
principle can be derived from the principle of conservation of energy, 9his states
that, in a steady flow, the sum of all forms of mechanical energy in a fluid along a
streamline is the same at all points on that streamline, 9his re1uires that the sum
of kinetic energy and potential energy remain constant,

CONCLUSION
/ernoulli>s principle can be used to calculate the lift force on an airfoil if the
behaviour of the fluid flow in the vicinity of the foil is known, 5or e.ample, if the air
flowing past the top surface of an aircraft wing is moving faster than the air flowing
past the bottom surface, then /ernoulli>s principle implies that the pressure on the
surfaces of the wing will be lower above than below, 9his pressure difference
results in an upwards lifting force, *henever the distribution of speed past the top
and bottom surfaces of a wing is known, the lift forces can be calculated <to a good
appro.imation= using /ernoulli>s e1uations established by /ernoulli over a century
before the first man+made wings were used for the purpose of flight, /ernoulli>s
principle does not e.plain why the air flows faster past the top of the wing and
slower past the underside, 9o understand why, it is helpful to understand
circulation, the Dutta condition, and the DuttaEFoukowski theorem,
9he carburetor used in many reciprocating engines contains a venturi to create a
region of low pressure to draw fuel into the carburetor and mi. it thoroughly with
the incoming air, 9he low pressure in the throat of a venturi can be e.plained by
/ernoulli>s principleG in the narrow throat, the air is moving at its fastest speed and
therefore it is at its lowest pressure,
9he Pitot tube and static port on an aircraft are used to determine the airspeed of
the aircraft, 9hese two devices are connected to the airspeed indicator, which
determines the dynamic pressure of the airflow past the aircraft, Dynamic pressure
is the difference between stagnation pressure and static pressure, /ernoulli>s
principle is used to calibrate the airspeed indicator so that it displays the indicated
airspeed appropriate to the dynamic pressure
