Can anyone prove the oscillation of a fluid in a U-tube or a bent V tube is a SHM for small displacements using Bernoulli's theorem?

TopNewestIf you recall, Bernoulli's equation assumes steady state fluid flow. Since the fluid oscillating in the U-tube is changing direction, there's no steady flow. There's also damping and turbulence. Long story short, Bernoulli's equation does not apply here.

If we assume there is no damping can we apply it then?

As long as the flow isn't steady Bernoulli's equation isn't valid.
