Epvl + P+ pgy= constant is the result of the conservation of mass for a moving ﬂuid.
the conservation of energy for a moving ﬂuid. the conservation of linear momentum for a moving liuid.
Newton's Third La'luiilI for a moving ﬂuid. the equation of continuity for a moving fluid. r Explanation —\@iuiewere~duus amuse “EMF The fist thing that We notice is that the given expression states that the sum of three terms is equal to a oohstant,
that is to say that some quantity is conserved. We can then look at the expression and try and think about whether any of the terms have a familiar form. 1
Epv1+ P+ pgy= constant Notice that the sum on the left hand side of the equation is a sum of each individual energy {per unit volume}
contribution and therefore represents the total energy. For reference, the terms represent the kinetic energy.
