## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi, why is it that in a venturi system the pressure is lower when the diameter of the cross sectional area is smaller?

I do not understand why pressure can be considered a form of "energy". I can understand that energy must be conserved and due to the reduction in the diameter the increase in speed (K.E increase) means a reduction in this pressure energy

Can someone please help me get my head around why this is the case?

Thanks

Thomas
