If Bernoulli's equation P + 1/2ρv(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{2}+ ρgh = constant, implying that pressuredecreasesas velocity increases, and the Venturi effect states that a_{1}v_{1}= a_{2}v, what resolves this apparent contradiction? The velocity slows as the cross sectional area increases, but a narrower pipe would have greater pressure?

# I A1v1=a2v2? pressure and velocity are inversely proportional?

Have something to add?
