## Product Details

AP Physics 2, Big Ideas 1 & 5, Investigation 2

Bernoulli’s Principle applies to many different fields, ranging from understanding blood pressure in medicine to helping solve everyday engineering problems in the aerodynamics industry. Scientists like Bernoulli and Torricelli helped form a fundamental description of fluids in motion. Application of these principles is almost unlimited!

This advanced-inquiry lab begins with an introductory class demonstration of conservation of mass flow in order to give students a basic understanding of fluids. Students are encouraged to engage in a class discussion regarding conservation of energy to evaluate the continuity equation. This leads to a guided-inquiry activity in which students design and carry out an investigation to determine the rate of flow of water from a container.

Complete for 24 students working in groups of four.
