Homework Statement


How does fluid move from low pressure area in a Venturi to a high pressure area, which is downstream from the Venturi.

Homework Equations




The Attempt at a Solution


Not understanding the mechanism here, as I thought fluids only go from high pressure to low presure. Since the Venturi creates a section of low pressure, how does the fluid move to a high pressure area, which is the section of pipe where it has a larger diameter.

Hello and welcome to PF!

Think about the direction of the acceleration of the fluid in the region you are considering.
