A classroom/laboratory demonstration based on a simple blower-nozzle arrangement is described. The information that emerges from the exercise provides data for Bernoulli, energy, momentum, and thermodynamic calculations that show the consistency of several approaches to a common mass flow problem. Extensions are made into the domain of compressible flow and the idealization of actual devices.
