The kinetic energy of a fluid increases as it is accelerated in an adiabatic nozzle. Where does this energy come from?
The nozzle is a mechanical device that made or composed as a tube of a changing cross section and, utilised to discharge the liquid. The nozzle is used to enhance the velocity of the moving fluid.
Answer and Explanation:
As the fluid enters into the adiabatic nozzle, the velocity of the fluid increases at the expense of the pressure. Therefore the kinetic energy of the fluid increases and the internal energy of the fluid will be converted into the kinetic energy.
