\bәr- nü-lēz-\ n [Daniel Bernoulli † 1782 Swiss physicist] At any point in a tube through which a liquid is flowing the sum of the pressure energy, potential energy, and kinetic energy is constant. If p is pressure; h, height above the reference plane; d, density of the liquid, and v, velocity of flow,
$$p + hdg + {1 \over 2}dv^2 = {\rm a \ constant}.$$
