# BERNOULLIS EQUATION

## Bernoullis equation states that the sum of

all forms of energy in a fluid flowing along
an enclosed path is the same at any two
points in that path.
Assumptions:
Density is constant (incompressible)
Friction losses are negligible

BERNOULLIS EQUATION

{A (Press. forces) + A (Kinetic Energy) +
A (Potential Energy)} = 0

Pressure forces = F S
Kinetic Energy = m v

Applications of B.Eqn:
B.E often combined with continuity
equation to find velocities & pressures in
the flow connected by a streamline
Orifice meter; venturi meter
Flow in pumps etc.,
Fluid friction
Fluid friction is defined as any conversion of
mechanical energy into heat in a flowing stream
Denoted by the letter h
f
(J/kg)
h

represents all the friction generated per unit
mass of fluid bet (1) & (2)

If a pump is used during flow, then the term work
done by the pump should be added to B.E

entrance pressure of the fluid is 68.9 kN/m

in the pipe,
which connects to a pump which actually supplies 155.4
J/kg of fluid flowing in the pipe. The exit pipe from the
pump is the same diameter as the inlet pipe. The exit
section of the pipe is 3.05 m higher than the entrance, and
the exit pressure is 137.8 kN/m

. The Reynolds number in
the pipe is above 4000 in the system. Calculate the
frictional loss h

from an open
storage feed tank of large cross-sectional area
through a 3.068ID suction line. The pump
discharges its flow through a 2.067ID line to an
open overhead tank. The end of the discharge
line is 50 ft above the level of the liquid in the
feed tank. The friction losses in the piping
system are 10.0 ft-lb

horsepower of the pump if its efficiency is 65%?
What pressure must the pump develop?
