    Bernoulli Equation

      Bernoulli Equation It is customary to express the energy contained in a fluid in terms of the potential energy contained in an equivalent height or “head” of a column of the fluid. Using this convention, Bernoulli’s theorem breaks down the total energy at a point in terms of: 1.     The head due to its elevation above an arbitrary datum of zero potential energy. 2.     A pressure head due to the potential energy contained in the pressure in the fluid at that point. 3.      A velocity head due to the kinetic energy contained within the fluid Assuming that no energy is added to the fluid by a pump or compressor,…
