Bernoulli’s Principle

Switzerland. 1782 in Basel. . won 10 prizes of the Paris Academy of Sciences. published in 1738. with Euler. It would be better for the true physics if there were no mathematicians on earth.Born of a family of leading mathematicians Spent most of his life dedicated to Basel University ‘Hydrodynamica’. was a milestone in the theory of the flowing behavior of liquids Died on March 17.

‽ Has zero viscosity (no resistance to motion) ‽ Incompressible (density remains constant) .

or in regular paths • velocity. wind • fluid travels smoothly blows gently. pressure. etc.‽ Laminar flow: • Occurs when waters flow smoothly. and other flow properties at each point in the fluid remain constant. .

irregular and unpredictable manner • Often occurs when it passes over obstacles. riverbanks. etc.‽ Turbulent flow: • Fluid travels in unsteady. creating whirlpools and eddies • E. : blood flow. .g.

The rate of flow into an area must equal the rate of flow out of an area. R1 =R2 A1v1= A2v2 .

.

so: • Δm= ρV • Δm= ρAd(Velocity = Area * distance [A*d]) • Δm= ρAvΔt(distance = velocity * time [v*t]) Δm • =Av ρΔt Δm • R=Av (Let =R which is the flow rate) ρΔt .• ρ= m(formula for density) V • m= ρV(rearranging the equation) • We are talking about the fluid flowing in changing cross-sectional area.

The velocity of fluid is inversely proportional to its pressure 𝟏 V= 𝑷 Equation: P+ ρv2+ ρgh= constant 1 1 2 P1+ ρv1 + ρgh1 = P2 + ρv22+ ρgh2 2 2 .

then: P + ½ρv2 = constant slower speed more pressure faster speed less pressure .P+ ρgy + ½ ρv2 = constant No change in height.

Bernoulli’s Principle is applicable to cases where: • Flow is laminar Substance referred to are fluids since they are incompressible. Law of Continuity holds true if: • .

AIRFOIL On top: greater air speed and less air pressure On bottom: less air speed and more air pressure .

less pressure net force: downward . more pressure greater air speed.Spoiler – airfoil reversed less air speed.

Racecar Spoiler provides better traction and avoids lift .
