Physics in Action: Bernoulli's Principle

| No Comments | 1 TrackBack
Professor Ephraim Fischbach has an amazing physics lab at Purdue University, and we were fortunate enough to be able to join him for some dazzling Physics I demonstrations. 

In this Physics in Action video, watch as Professor Fischbach discusses and demonstrates Bernoulli's Principle, a phenomenon that allows us to fly airplanes even though they are much heavier than air. He also gets into the science of sports, showing how this physical phenomenon  affects objects in many games. Without it, a baseball pitcher couldn't throw a curveball! 

Take a look and see what we mean, and keep your eyes open for more Physics in Action videos over the next few weeks.

Isaac Newton's three laws of motion are the foundation of classical mechanics, one of the main branches of physics. His third law of motion states that if object A exerts a force on object B, object B always exerts a force back, and the two forces are ... Read More
