A flow o watter intae a venturi meter. The kinetic energy increases at the expense o the fluid pressur, as shawn bi the difference in hicht o the twa columns o watter.

In fluid deenamics, Bernoulli's principle states that an increase in the speed o a fluid occurs simultaneously wi a decrease in pressur or a decrease in the fluid's potential energy.[1][2] The principle is named efter Daniel Bernoulli wha published it in his beuk Hydrodynamica in 1738.[3]
