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. – Josh Silverman Staff · 1 week, 2 days ago

If we assume there is no damping can we apply it then?Log in to reply

As long as the flow isn't steady Bernoulli's equation isn't valid.Log in to reply

Now, it is okay. Is it necessary to use Bernoulli's theorem? you can prove much more easily without using that.Log in to reply

I know how to prove without it. I wanted a proof using Bernoulli's theorem which makes this more interesting.Log in to reply

Okay, then I think I should delete this comment. Because it is not the required answer. :)Log in to reply
