For reference, the Bernoulli equation is: Example 1 A reservoir contains an outlet that consists of a pipe that discharges water 50 ft below the top of the reservoir. What is the velocity of the water exiting the pipe (at point B)? Solution If you define elevation zero at point B: Point A has only […]

The Bernoulli equation states that the total energy possessed by a fluid is the sum of its pressure, kinetic, and potential energies. Using this starting point, we can calculate the total head, ht, and total pressure, pt, that the fluid is under: Calculating the energy of a liquid is purely a theoretical exercise, but the […]
