Venturi’s effect happens when a fluid goes through the narrowing of a conduct; as it gets nearer to the narrowing, its speed increases, whereas static pressure goes down. On the contrary, as it moves away from the narrowing, speed decreases and static pressure increases.
This effect was proven by the Italian physicist Giovanni Battista Venturi in 1797 and is applied to many everyday actions that we present to you as examples, further on in this post.
For now, let’s study Venturi’s effect theory a little, as we did with our post about Bernoulli’s Principle. Read on!
