Always anything flows from higher pressure to the lower pressure.

But in this question inlet pressure is always less than the discharge pressure then how flow takes place.

My intention is inlet pressure is always greater than the outlet pressure then only flow will be takes place. Because anything flows from higher pressure to lower pressure.

How does the inlet pressure are less than the discharge pressure? example. 50PA from inlet how much the discharge? we consider the pressure losses?

Here the compressor are used so what is the basic work of the compressor is to increase the pressure so if the pressure at inlet is more than the whole concept of compressor goes wrong.

Hence the inlet pressure is always less than outlet pressure.

When the compressor is working the pressure will increase, because of reducing the area of the compressor. So, the inlet pressure is always less than outlet pressure of the compressor.

Inlet pressure<Discharge pressure.
