Homework Help: Bernoulli's Principle density and velocity

  1. Nov 22, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The density of the liquid flowing through a horizontal pipe is 1600 kg/m3. The speed of the fluid at point A is 4 m/s while at point B it is 8.0 m/s. What is the difference in pressure, PB - PA, between points B and A?

    a. -1.9 x 10^3Pa

    b. -3.8 x 10^4Pa

    c. +4.5 x 10^4Pa

    d. +5.0 x 10^4Pa

    *e. -7.7 x 10^4Pa

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    and the answer key says its -7.7 x 10^4Pa
    what did I do wrong? :s
