Thr Bernoulli Myth clarified on Talk only[change source]

The actual myth is the way this has been misinterpreted and repeated for such a long time as "Fast air has or creates lower pressure (compared to near-by slower, or still air)". I call that "Bad Bernoulli" and have been trying to combat it mostly on YouTube for several years and now the Q&A site.

Folks defend Bad Bernoulli to their death as though it is an additional fundamental principle of physics that must be memorized. They heard it from a likewise misinformed authority figure. That version is so ingrained that you can find so many videos and teacher lesson plans with that version.

As of this date, the wording here is very good at clearly explaining the science.

I met with some resistance when I tried to clear up the cause-effect on the regular Wiki page, but left it since it clearly just stated the inverse relationship of P & V and pretty much stopped there since the working of the correct Principle does not ascribe any cause and effect, but only the inverse relation.

In all honesty, Bad Bernoulli will have no effect on 99% of people's lives who learned it, but it still should be explained correctly somewhere. Regards, EngineerSteve (talk) 16:03, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Thinking, I wonder if it is appropriate to add a section explaining how the common misinterpretation is incorrect...? EngineerSteve (talk) 16:07, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
