of its applications, and conduct an
investigation to demonstrate it.

Fluid Flow
The speed at which a fluid flows depends on
the diameter of the pipe.
In the diagram below, the fluid must flow
more quickly in section B than in section A.
Pressure Differences
The water must accelerate as it moves from A
to B. This acceleration must be caused by a
force.
This force is caused by the difference in
pressure between the two regions.
Bernoulli’s Principle
Where the speed of a fluid is low, the pressure is high.
Where the speed of a fluid is high, the pressure is low.
Lift
The upward force, or lift, on an airplane wing
can be explained using Newton’s 3rd Law of
Motion and Bernoulli’s Principle.
Lift and Newton
As the wing moves forward, air deflects off the
bottom of the wing: the wing pushes on the air.
The air therefore pushes back (the reaction force).
Lift and Bernoulli
The speed of the air near the deflection is less than the
speed of the flow of air over the wing.
Therefore the pressure under the wing is higher than the
pressure over the wing.
