In the reading assignment for today, Ralph noticed two different equations labeled "Bernoulli's Equation". One said, "P1 + r v12 + rgh1P2 + r v22 + rgh2", the other said, "P + r v2 + rgh = C". He wants to know how they can both be the same equation when they look so different. And what does C stand for, anyway? What can you tell him?

The comments in the next next two boxes go into a big, mostly anonymous text file that I skim through before the morning lecture, using the comments to help me plan class discussion. ("Mostly anonymous", because I can track down who made what comment, but it takes some effort on my part to do so.) Therefore, if you really want to make sure I see your question/comment and answer it individually, you should send it to me via email and not through this form.

Which part of today's assignment was particularly hard or confusing? What would you like to spend extra time on in class?
