Introduction The main objective of the laboratory 7 of the physics course 103m was to show how the Bernoullis principle acts and what conditions are necessary to fulfill his famous equation Pa+1/2 Va^2+ gy = Pb+1/2 Vb^2+ gy . The equation relates velocity, height and pressure just as the work energy equation, when the important conditions that the fluid is incompressible, non viscous and non turbulent flow fluid are fulfilled. represents the density of the fluid, y the height relative to the other point just as potential energy, P is the pressure of the fluid that is in N/m^2, all units in the calculations to obtain an interpretable result. Another important assumption is that theres no friction of the fluid against the flow. In this experiment we used an old artifact with one glass tube with two different diameters along its length to increase the air speed and change the path of the air, a pitot tube, which allowed us to measure two different...
