Product number: F100B

The Optional Bernoulli’s Equation F100B investigation duct has been designed for operation with the Hilton Airflow System F100. The duct allows students to quantitatively investigate Bernoulli’s equation relating total pressure and dynamic pressure in a stream. The unit also introduces students to the Pitot - static tube, an essential tool for aerodynamic investigation and velocity measurement.

A convergent divergent duct section has a pitot-static tube that can be moved axially along the duct to allow students to measure the local variations in total and static pressure due to the variation in duct cross section.

The measured pressure changes may be compared with the Bernoulli equation predictions. The device is designed for use with the optional multi-tube manometer F100A.
