BERNOULLIS THEOREM

KIG1003

ABSTRACT

This experiment is carried out to investigate the validity of Bernoullis theorem as applied to the steady

flow of water in a tapered circular duct. The experiment is also to measure the time taken to collect 5L of

water, the volumetric flow rates of the water, the fluid velocity at each tapping point, static head, and also

the total head. The relation among the pressure, velocity and elevation in a moving fluid (liquid or gas),

the compressibility and viscosity (internal friction) of which are negligible and the flow of which is

steady or laminar is indicated in Bernoullis theorem. The combination of venturi meter complete with

manometer tube and hydraulic bench were used in this experiment, in order to demonstrate the

Bernoullis theorem. The flow rate and total velocity was calculated by using Bernoulli and the difference

in velocity for both equations was also calculated from the data of the results. After all the readings have

been taken, the theoretical total head at each tapping and the total head probe were compared. Based on

the results taken, it has been analyzed that the velocity of the fluid is increased when it is flowing from a

wider to a narrower tube as the pressure is lower at constrictions and the pressure increased as the crosssectional area increases

OBJECTIVE

known geometry for a range of steady flow rates.

BERNOULLIS THEOREM

KIG1003

INTRODUCTION

In fluid dynamics, Bernoullis principle states that for an inviscid flow, an increase in the speed of the

fluid occurs simultaneously with a decrease in pressure or a decrease in the fluid potential energy.

Bernoullis principle is named after the Dutch-Swiss mathematician, Daniel Bernoulli who published his

principle in his book, Hydrodynamics, in 1738. Bernoullis principle can be applied to various types of

fluid flow, resulting in what is loosely denoted as Bernoulli equation. (Yates, 2010) Bernoullis principle

can be derived from the principle of conservation of energy. This 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 the streamline.

This requires that the sum of kinetic energy and potential energy remain constant. Thus, an increase in the

speed of fluid occurs proportionately with an increase in both its dynamic pressure and kinetic energy,

and a decrease in its static pressure and potential energy. (Wikipedia) Fluid particles are subject only to

pressure and their own weight. If a fluid is flowing horizontally and along a section of a streamline where

the speed increases, it can only be because the fluid on that section has moved from a region of higher

pressure to a region of lower pressure. And if its speed decreases, it can only be because it has moved

from a region of lower pressure to a region of higher pressure. Consequently, within a fluid moving

horizontally, the highest speed occurs when the pressure is lowest and the lowest speed occur when the

pressure is highest. (Yates, 2010) Bernoullis equation holds that for fluids in an ideal state, pressure and

density are inversely related, in other words, a slow-moving fluid exerts more pressure than a fast-moving

fluid. Since fluid in this context applies equally to liquid and gases. The principle has many as many

applications with regard to airflow as to the flow of liquids. One of the everyday examples of Bernoullis

principle can be found on the airplane, which stays aloft due to pressure differences on the surface of its

wing.

Considering flow at two sections in a pipe, Bernoullis equation may be written as:

2

U1

p

U

For this apparatus Z1 = Z2 and P = gh

Hence if Bernoullis Theorem is obeyed:

U2

H=

+ h and is constant at all sections along the duct.

This equation is known as the Bernoullis equation.

U= the fluid flow speed at a point on a streamline

= the gravity acceleration

= the elevation of the point above a reference plane, with the positive z-direction pointing upward so

in the direction opposite to the gravitational acceleration

= the pressure at the chosen point

= the density of the fluid at all points in the fluid

BERNOULLIS THEOREM

KIG1003

Bernoullis principle is applicable for the explanation of the lift force on an aerofoil. For instance, the

flow of the air at the top of aerofoil has to move at a higher speed compare to the bottom part of the

aerofoil as to create a region of low pressure. While the air on the bottom part of the aerofoil has to travel

at lower speed in order to produce a region of higher pressure. Bernoullis principle applied in this case

where the different in speed will result the pressure to be different and as a result a lift force will be

created to life the aeroplane. Bernoullis principle is also applied in the Bunsen burner. The gas will flow

at high velocity in the narrow passage in the Bunsen burner as to create a region of low pressure.Later

then the atmospheric pressure will be drawn into it n mixed with the gas which allow the gas to be burned

and produce a hot fire.

BERNOULLIS THEOREM

DISCUSSION

The objectives of this experiment is to investigate the validity of the Bernoulli equation when applied to

the steady flow of water in a tapered duct and to measure the flowrates and both static and total pressure

heads in a rigid convergent and divergent tubeof known geometry for a range of steady flow rates.

This experiment is based on the Bernoullis principle which relates between velocities with the pressure

for an inviscid flow. To achieve the objectives of this experiment, Bernoullis theorem demonstration

apparatus along with the hydraulic bench were used. This instrument was combined with aventuri meter

and the pad of manometer tubes which indicate the pressure of h1until h8 but for this experiment only the

pressure in manometer h1 until h6 being measured.A venturi is basically a converging-diverging section

(like an hourglass), typically placed between tube or duct sections with fixed crosssectional area. The flow rates through the venturi meter can be related to pressure measurements by using

Bernoullis equation. From the result obtained through this experiment, it is been observed that when the

pressure difference increase, the flow rates of the water increase and thus the velocities also increase for

both convergent and divergent flow. The result show a rise at each manometer tubes when the pressure

difference increases. As fluid flows from a wider pipe toa narrower one, the velocity of the flowing fluid

increases. This is shown in all the results tables, where the velocity of water that flows in the tapered duct

increases as the duct area decreases, regardless of the pressure difference and type of flow of each result

taken. There must be some parallax and zero error occurs when taking the measurement of each data. The

observer must have not read the level of static head properly. Moreover, the eyes are not perpendicular to

the water level on the manometer. Therefore, there are some minor effects on the calculations due to the

errors and this can be seen from the result obtained which there is few value calculated get negative

values for U. Therefore, it can be concluded that the Bernoullis equation is valid when applied to steady

flow of water in tapered duct and absolute velocity values increase along the same channel. Although the

experiment proof that the Bernoullis equation is valid for both flow

but the values obtain might be slightly differ from the actual value. This is because there issome error

maybe happen during the experiment is done. While taking the reading of the manometer, there might be

possibility that the eye position of the readers is not parallel to the scale.Thus, this error will contribute to

the different in the values obtained. Other than that,the readers must take the accurate reading from the

manometers. In order to get the accurate value, the water level must be let to be really stable. Thus, a

patient is needed in order to run this experiment successfully because sometimes the way the experiment

is conduct may influence the result of the experiment.

CONCLUSION

The results show the reading of each manometer tubes increase when the pressure difference increases.

From the result obtained, we can conclude that the Bernoullis equation is valid for convergent and

divergent flow as both of it does obey the equation. For both flow,as the pressure difference increase, the

time taken for 5L water collected increase and the flow rates of the water also increase. Thus, as the

velocity of the same channel increase, the total head pressure also increase for both convergent and

divergent flow.
