ABSTRACT
The article presents a question and answer advisory concerning the understanding the fundamentals of fluid flow. The total pressure for a fluid at any position units flow path is a function of its height above its starting point, its velocity, the direction it is traveling, and the friction through the conduit it travels. They have also featured the Darley Behind-the-Panel Butterfly Value.
