Homework Statement


I was reading up on the Bernoulli's incompressible flow equation on wikipedia when I came across a thing called force potential(ψ). Could anyone explain what is it ? Is there an equation for finding the force potential at a point?? I would like to know the equation.


Homework Equations



Bernoulli's Equation

The Attempt at a Solution



PS: If it is a calculus concept, please explain it in a simple manner as I am a beginner in calculus and I just started learning Indefinite Integration 2-3 months ago. If it cannot be explained without advanced calculus, then please inform me. :)
Thanks in Advance

Force potential is a measure of the ability of a force to do work. It is equal to the force times the distance through which it is applied. W = F x d Potential energy is the energy of position. It is the energy of something due to its position in the universe.
