I The Bernoulli principle from the perspective of statistical mechanics

  1. Feb 13, 2017 #1
    Hi community,

    I have a question about the Bernoulli principle. From statistical mechanics the pressure in the ideal gas is independent of velocity.

    But in the case of the flow of an ideal gas in a channel, the pressure depends on the velocity.

    Where can I clarify this misunderstanding?

    Thanks for your time, and any suggestion

    Under what circumstances does SM derive this statement of independency ?
