### How is work done in a nozzle zero

Fluid flow gets accelerated through a nozzle. As the flow is accelerating( and there is a change in momentum). According to Newton's second law we can say a net force is acting on the fluid through a ...

### Feynman's derivation of Bernoulli (part of it)

OK, so what's up with the $\Delta M$ here? I don't get it. In fact, my textbook doesn't even put it in. I don't think it is a type-o because he continues on with the explanation. If anything I got it ...

### Deriving the expression for the height of liquid in a cylinder spinning on a turntable using Bernoulli's principle

When a liquid in a cylinder is spun on a turntable, it will experience a vortex or whirlpool effect, as shown below: I have seen and understood a proof for the value of $h$ by taking the motion of a ...

### Deriving Bernoulli's equation from Navier-Stokes equation [closed]

I can prove the Bernoulli equation in an elementary way (that is, using the conservation of energy law). But I was asked to derive the Bernoulli equation from the Navier-Stokes equations, and I have ...

### Can the lift generated by a helicopter be justified using Bernoulli theorem? [duplicate]

When the shaft of the helicopter rotates, it creates a low pressure. Because of the low pressure, the helicopter lifts. Is my understanding that this is just an application of Bernoulli's theorem?
