all i know about nozzle is that, it converts high temperature, low velocity air to low temperature, high velocity air.
But how does that happen? is it the bernoulii law?

I browsed the net and found nothing useful......

Yeah, that's something that needs to be asked in more detail. It sounds as if perfectz is asking about a rocket or jet nozzle, but there are lots of other types as well. Essentially, I believe that anything that changes the speed of a fluid or gas flow is considered a nozzle. They can be convergent, divergent, or a combination thereof. Even the venturi in a carbeurator or airbrush is a nozzle.

A nozzle is a nozzle is a nozzle. It doesn't matter where the nozzle is physically located.

Start with using Google:

That took a whopping 4 seconds.
