    To apply Bernoulli's theorem,
    1. The fluid is assumed to be ideal, steady, incompressible and one-dimensional.
    2. The gravitational force and pressure force are only considered in Bernoulli's theorem.
    3. The flow is assumed to be irrotational so that it should be an ideal flow condition
    4. The heat flow into or out of fluid should be zero which is a limitation of Bernoulli's theorem
