Bernoulli can be used for compressible flow as well.Hi, urgent question. Bernoulli's equation seems to be conservation of energy. I read that it's only for incompressible flows; but isn't the term involving pressure the energy due to the work done on a mass of air in compressing it?
Thanks
For incompressible fluids, the pressure term represents work done on a mass to either accelerate/decelerate it, or change it's elevation. I.e. it can change either the gravitational potential or the kinetic energy (or both).Hi, urgent question. Bernoulli's equation seems to be conservation of energy.
