Kinetic Energy

Ek=12mv2m is massv is velocity

Dynamic Pressure (we substitute density, ρ, for mass):

q =12ρv2ρ is densityv is velocity


Potential Energy of air is its Pressure, P, expressed in energy per volume:

P =EpVol


The principle of conservation of energy is expressed in the Bernoulli Equation (Chris Heintz formulation expressed in energy per volume):


From Lumen Learning expressed a bit differently:

P + 12ρv2 + ρgh = CP is absolute pressureρ is fluid densityv is velocity of the fluidh is height above some reference pointg is acceleration due to gravityC is a constant value
