Roofs are sometimes pushed off vertically during a tropical cyclone, and buildings sometimes explode outward when hit by a tornado. Use Bernoulli’s principle to explain these phenomena.
Step 1 of 4
Bernoulli’s principle states that for a steady flow, the total mechanical energy of a fluid remains constant. The mechanical energy consists of the fluid’s pressure energy, potential energy per unit volume and kinetic energy per unit volume. Therefore, the expression for Bernoulli’s principle is,
Here, pressure of the fluid,
density of the fluid
acceleration due to gravity
height at the point where the pressure is measured.
