I understand the logic, but wouldn't the air only speed up as the pipe narrows if it were being forced in from the outside? If the only force of air coming in is from what the tb sucks up, then how could it possible speed up? It will only suck in as much as it can possibly handle. In order for the air pressure to increase or speed up, it would have to be getting forced in and then we would have a ram air. Im obviously only using my own logic and reasoning and if im incorrect could someone please explain it further?
