**Does pipe size affect pressure?**

Increasing the pipe diameter won’t change the static pressure (the pressure when no water is flowing). When you open a spigot, however, the water pressure at that spigot decreases somewhat, and because a larger pipe provides a lower resistance to flow, the water pressure will decrease less with the larger pipe.

### Does reducing pipe size increase pressure?

“In a water flowing pipeline, if the diameter of a pipe is reduced, the pressure in the line will increase. Bernoulli’s theorem says that there should be a reduction in pressure when the area is reduced. The narrower the pipe, the higher the velocity and the greater the pressure drop.

**Does increasing pressure increase velocity?**

Area of cross-section of the flow is inversely proportional to velocity of flow. AV= constant. As the area of cross-section decreases velocity increases . As the pressure decreases in the nozzle with increase in the velocity because they both are inversely proportional.

## Is flow rate directly proportional to velocity?

Flow is different than velocity. Velocity is defined as the distance a given fluid moves within a unit of time, most commonly expressed in centimeters per second. The flow of a fluid within a tube is related to velocity by the relationship F = V ⋅ r2, where V is the mean velocity and r is the radius of the tube.

**What is the relationship between velocity and pressure?**

Pressure and velocity are inversely proportional to each other. If pressure increases, the velocity decreases to keep the algebraic sum of potential energy, kinetic energy, and pressure constant.
