- Giovanni Battista Venturi Biography (1746 - 1822)
- Venturi was Born in Bibbiano, March 15, 1746 died at Reggio Emilia in April 1822 Italian physicist who determined that "a constriction in a short tube between two parties are generally sharper than unequal length, but end with the same diameter, so that there is a pressure drop in a fluid flowing through the constriction that can be used to determine the flow velocity or used as a suction source,. also devices that have this form and effect involved "(OED.) Another way of saying, ie that the velocity of a fluid flowing through a tube can be accelerated by introducing a constriction to decrease in the flow path. Bernoulli's principle tells us that Venturiâconstriction also reduce the pressure of the fluid, since an increase in speed should lead to a decrease in pressure, and, for all villagers out there, this is the principle behind the jet pump . Venturi was a contemporary of Lagrange and Laplace, and a pupil of Lazzaro Spallanzani. He was ordained as a priest in 1769, and in the same year appointed as a teacher of logic at the seminary of Reggio Emilia. In 1774 he became a professor of geometry and philosophy at the University of Modena, where in 1776 he became professor of physics. He was the first to call attention to the importance of Leonardo da Vinci as a scientist, and compiled and published many of Galileo's manuscripts and letters.
