Can Bernoulli's equation be used to describe the flow of water through a rapid in a river? Explain.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Turbulent flow: it occurs when the Reynold number is greater than certain threshold value. It is very complex flow where inconsistent flow patterns and velocity fluctuations throughout the volume will happens during the flow. Laminar f...
