Bernoulli Equation
Bernoulli EquationFor some flows, it is possible to neglect the viscosity and focus on the pressure changes along a streamline, which is a line drawn through the flow field in a direction that is always tangential to the velocity field. For such an inviscid, incompressible flow along a streamline, the Bernoulli equation can be used to investigate the relationship between pressures and velocities. This is particularly useful in situations with converging flows. The equation, named after the Swiss mathematician, physicist, and physician, Daniel Bernoulli, is written as
