**Equation #16: Bernoulli’s Equation**

Essentially a restatement of the law of conservation of energy, this equation means that in a given steady irrotational flow of fluid the pressure and velocity at any point is related. The term “v^{2}/2″ denotes kinetic energy and “gz” denotes potential energy for a given density “ρ”. The sum of kinetic energy, potential energy and Pressure is constant.
