Fluid Dynamics and the Bernoulli Equation

This is a simulation of an incompressible fluid flowing from left to right through a pipe. In the simulation you can adjust the height, pressure, velocity, and radius of the pipe for the fluid flowing in the left side of the pipe. You can also adjust the height and radius of the right side of the pipe. The velocity and the pressure in the right side of the pipe can be calculated using the Bernoulli equation. After they have been calculated, they answers can be checked by marking the checkbox in the top right corner of the simulation.
