the decrease in pressure as the velocity of a fluid increases.
The phenomenon of falling pressure in a fluid as the velocity of the fluid stream increases. The Bernoulli effect accounts for the lift generated by the airfoil shape of an airplane wing. See also Bernoulli’s law, lift. See Note at aerodynamics.

Statistics. law of averages (def 1). Hydrodynamics. an expression of the conservation of energy in streamline flow, stating that the sum of the ratio of the pressure to the mass density, the product of the gravitational constant and the vertical height, and the square of the velocity divided by 2 are constant.
- Bernoulli trial
repeated independent experiments having two possible outcomes for each experiment with the probability for each outcome remaining constant throughout the experiments, as tossing a coin several times. noun (statistics) one of a sequence of independent experiments each of which has the same probability of success, such as successive throws of a die, the outcome of […]
