Bernoulli equation

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

An equation that describes the conservation of energy in the steady flow of an ideal, frictionless, incompressible fluid. It states that: p1/p2 + gz + (v2/2) is constant along any stream line, where p1 is the fluid pressure, p2 is the mass density of the fluid, v is the fluid velocity, g is the acceleration due to gravity, and z is the vertical height above a datum level.
