Homework Help: Question on venturi pump

  1. Sep 21, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    on a venturi pump the fluid, air or water move through a narrow tube and increases speed and also decreases pressure. Now I have read before that the dynamic pressure and the static pressure are added to get the total pressure. How fast does the fluid have to flow to create suction?


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
