Bernoullis principle also states that fluid is incompressible. We did this with the use of an air tube with two different diameters at each end, two manometers, a pitot tube which allowed the measurement of the stagnant and ambient pressure, and an inlet attachment which is used to cause turbulence. Hypothesis: Due to the use of the air tube and the manometers we should see that no matter what values are found the equation will be proven, but once the inlet tube is inserted there should be an error in B ernoullis equation due to turbulence. Conclusion: When calculating ?? the value recorded was 0, which was expected due to the fact that velocity was not supposed to change. So with this value brings us to the conclusion that stagnant pressure would remain constant and ambient would experience more...
