Bernoulli? Perhaps, but What about Viscosity?
Eastwell, Peter
Science Education Review, v6 n1 p1-13 2007
Bernoulli's principle is being misunderstood and consequently misused. This paper clarifies the issues involved, hypothesises as to how this unfortunate situation has arisen, provides sound explanations for many everyday phenomena involving moving air, and makes associated recommendations for teaching the effects of moving fluids.
