Correct Answer - Option 1 : (i) & (iii)

Explanation:

Bernoulli’s equation:

$\frac{P}{\rho g} + \frac{{{v^2}}}{{2g}} + Z = Constant$

• It can be derived from the principle of conservation of energy.
• It states that, in a steady flow, the sum of all forms of energy in a fluid along a streamline is the same at all points on that streamline.
• It represented in head form (the total energy per unit weight).

Following assumption are made in deriving the Bernoulli’s equation:

1. Fluid is inviscid i.e. zero viscosity.
3. Flow is incompressible.
4. Flow is irrotational.
5. Flow is along the streamline.
6. Only gravity and pressure force acting on the liquid, no other external force.

Even if the flow is rotational, we can still apply the Bernoulli’s equation but only along a streamline.
