Closed Conduit Hydraulics - Bernoulli Equation

The Bernoulli Equation is used to analyze flow in closed pipe systems and is one of the most used equations in hydraulics (that I can remember!).

The base form of the equation relates energy between two or more points in a system. I think it is easier to remember and use in terms of head loss(ft or m).

 h_f = \dfrac{V_1^2}{2g}+\dfrac{p_1}{\rho g} + z_1 = \dfrac{V_2^2}{2g}+\dfrac{p_2}{\rho g} + z_2
