#### Solution 1

No

Bernoulli’s equation cannot be used to describe the flow of water through a rapid in a river because of the turbulent flow of water. This principle can only be applied to a streamline flow

#### Solution 2

Bernoulli’s theorem is applicable only for there it ideal fluids in streamlined motion. Since the flow of water in a river is rapid, way cannot be treated as streamlined motion, the theorem cannot be used.

Concept: Bernoulli’S Principle

Is there an error in this question or solution?
