Bernoulli's Equation

The Bernoulli's Equation simulation allows learners to explore the effect of variations in the height and the cross-sectional area of a pipe on the speed at which fluid flows through the pipe. There are two regions whose height and area can easily be modified. The results of the changes are immediately observable.
