Q.12:- Does it matter if one uses gauge instead of absolute pressures in applying Bernoulli’s equation? Explain.

 

 

Answer:-



No, it does not matter if one uses gauge pressure instead of absolute pressure while applying Bernoulli’s equation. The two points where Bernoulli’s equation is applied should have significantly different atmospheric pressures.
