Bernoulli’s Principle

Bernoulli’s Principle Bernoulli’s Principle states that as the speed of a moving fluid (liquid or gas) increases, the pressure within the fluid decreases. Venturi Effect The Venturi effect is the fluid pressure that results when an incompressible fluid flows through a constricted section of a pipe. Experiment 1 Figure above shows that when water flow … Read more

Principle of Floatation

Principle of Floatation The principle of floatation states that when an object floats in a liquid the buoyant force/upthrust that acts on the object is equal to the weight of the object. As shown in the figure above, if the weight of the object (W) = upthrust (F), the object is in balance and therefore … Read more
