  Daniel Bernoulli Summary
Bernoulli's discovery was one of the great moments in the history of science, for his extraordinary insights laid the foundations for the kinetic theory of gases, which in the 19th century fully validated his profound understanding of the nature of gases.
Daniel Bernoulli belongs to that rarefied upper echelon of mathematicians and scientists for whom distinctions between disciplines are largely academic.

One of the chief developers both of the ordinary calculus and of the calculus of variations, he was the first to use the word integral in solving Leibniz’s problem of the isochronous curve.
He was succeeded at Basel by his brother, Johann, Jean, or John Bernoulli, 1667–1748, who earlier had been professor at Gröningen and who was famous for his work in the field of integral and exponential calculus and was also a founder of the calculus of variations.
His son, Daniel Bernoulli, 1700–1782, was a mathematician, physicist, and physician and has often been called the first mathematical physicist.

 Bernoulli's Principle
Daniel Bernoulli was a Swiss physicist and mathematician who made important discoveries in hydrodynamics.
Bernoulli's most famous work, Hydrodynamica, was published in 1738, it is both a theoretical and a practical study of equilibrium, pressure, and velocity of fluids.
Bernoulli's Hydrodynamica also attempted the first explanation of the behavior of gases with changing pressure and temperature; this was the beginning of the kinetic theory of gases.

 Daniel Bernoulli and the making of the fluid equation
Daniel was attracted to Harvey's work because it combined his two loves of mathematics and fluids whilst earning the medical degree his father expected of him.
To investigate this, Daniel experimented by puncturing the wall of a pipe with a small open ended straw and noted that the height to which the fluid rose up the straw was related to fluid's pressure in the pipe.
However, Bernoulli's method of measuring pressure is still used today in modern aircraft to measure the speed of the air passing the plane; that is its air speed.

Daniel Bernoulli was the son and nephew of the respected mathematicians Johann Bernoulli and Jakob Bernoulli.
Bernoulli's Law, by Jakob Bernoulli is an altogether different concept; it states that a large number of items chosen at random from a population will, on the average, have the characteristics of the population.
Proponents of the application of Bernoulli's Principle claim that the problem with the assumptions are mostly minor artifacts and point out that the density assumption becomes moot if the velocity is low enough to assure incompressible flow.

Daniel is most remembered for his work on Hydrodynamics, which he developed uniformly from the single principle that later became known as the Conservation of Energy.
Daniel took up a position as professor of mathematics in Petrograd in 1724, but the lifestyle of the town was such that he did not approve, and when he became ill in 1733, he was quite happy to use his health as an excuce to leave and go back to Basel.
Daniel is also credited with being the first writer to attempt to formulate a kinetic theory of gases and he applied his ideas to try and explain the laws associated with the names of Boyle and Mariotte.

 Bernoulli and Newton
The proponents of the arguments usually fall into two camps: (1) those who support the "Bernoulli" position that lift is generated by a pressure difference across the wing, and (2) those who support the "Newton" position that lift is the reaction force on a body caused by deflecting a flow of gas.
Bernoulli also worked in many areas of mathematics and physics and had a degree in medicine.
Bernoulli's equation, which was named for Daniel Bernoulli, relates the pressure in a gas to the local velocity; so as the velocity changes around the object, the pressure changes as well.
