## Ber·noul·li law

(bĕr-nū'lē),when friction is negligible, the velocity of flow of a gas or fluid through a tube is inversely related to its pressure against the side of the tube; that is, velocity is greatest and pressure lowest at a point of constriction.

Synonym(s): Bernoulli principle, Bernoulli theorem
