33b represents one form of the Bernoulli equation, after the Swiss physicist and mathematician Daniel Bernoulli (1700–1782), who published it in 1738 along with his famous work, Hydrodynamica. Each term in the Bernoulli equation, as stated earlier, represents the energy per weight. In US customary units, these terms are expressed in foot (ft·lb/lb = ft), while in SI units, meter (m·N/N = m) is frequently used. 33b has the dimension of length [L], the first three terms, starting from the left, are designated as the pressure head, the elevation head, and the velocity head, respectively.

Thus, along the reach between these two sections, the river behaves as an effluent (gaining) stream. It may be further observed that influent streams flow over the ridge of the groundwater surface, while the effluent streams flow along the valley of groundwater surface. Thus, a study of the contour map shows that the river reach from A to B and from B to C behaves, respectively, as the influent and effluent stream.
