Lesson Plan: Conservation of Energy in Moving Fluids
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to use the Bernoulli equation to describe the relation of the pressure exerted by a fluid flow to its total energy.
Students will be able to
- use the equation in all combinations,
- identify what energy categories are represented by the terms of the equation ,
- distinguish between the pressure exerted by a fluid parallel to its flow direction and perpendicular to its flow direction.
Students should already be familiar with
- the continuity equation for fluids.
Students will not cover
- turbulent flow.
