Applications of Bernoulli’s Equation What happens if the bicyclist is accelerating or decelerating? Figure E3.2 (p. 101)
Static and Dynamic Pressures Along a streamline: p= static pressure, thermodynamic pressure =dynamic pressure, it represents the pressure rise when the fluid In motion is brought to a stop sentropically. ρg z= hydrostatic pressure, not actually a pressure, but represent a change in pressure due to potential energy variations of the fluid as a result of elevation changes The sum of these is called total pressure
Pitot Static Probe Connected to a pressure transducer or a manometer to measure the dynamic pressure
Cross-section of a directional finding pitot-tube
For symmetric object, stagnation is clearly at the tip or front For non-symmetric object, stagnation point is not very clear Figure 3.5 (p. 108) Stagnation points on bodies in flowing fluids.
Example 1. An airplane flies 100 mi/hr at an elevation of 10,000 ft in a standard atmosphere. Determine the pressure at point (1) far ahead of the airplane, the pressure at the stagnation point on the nose of the airplane (point 2) Figure E3.6a (p. 110)
