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 ...

Bernoulli's equation for flow between cylinders

Let's consider the situation bellow noting that the water cylinders aren't equal and there will be water flowing to the right (As indicated by the arrow) Taking Bernoulli's equation at the tip of the ...

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 ...

Bernoulli equations when different fluids and volumetric flow rates are involved

I have doubts on the use of Bernoulli equation when multiple volumetric flow rates are involved. Consider for istance the device in picture. Water flows in the main tube, while in the tank below ...

Is the change in cochlear potentials dependent on perilymph velocity? [closed]

context: This question may appear to be off topic because it is about the biological particulars of the human ear. Physics can solve abstract models inspired by living organisms, but it is biology ...

Static pressure of free air stream

One of the common misunderstandings regarding Bernoulli's principle is that, in general, "faster moving air has lower pressure". Bernoulli's principle can only be applied to asingle streamline in ...

Is Bernoulli's equation the correct explanation of a curved soccer ball? [duplicate]

I saw a lot of materials supposing that the Bernoulli's equation explains the curvature of a soccer ball: since the ball is spinning, two sides of the ball would experience different velocities, and ...
