The Bernoulli principle is based on the law of conservation of energy, which asserts that in any system energy can neither be created, nor destroyed; however, energy can be transformed.
The Bernoulli principle holds that the sum of the kinetic energy (1/2 Dv2), pressure (lateral wall pressure) energy (P), and potential energy (Dgh) at any point in the system equals the sum of those three forms of energy at any other location in the system.
The novel method based on Bernoulli principle is presented.
