Hydrodynamics & Bernoullis law

Fc-1 Ping pong ball in air stream

Published: Monday 13 March 2006

To Demonstrate how airflow can cause floatation.

Fc-2 The Venturi Flow Meter

Published: Monday 13 March 2006

To Demonstrate how Bernoulli's law applies to pressure

Fc-3 The parallel plate paradox

Published: Monday 13 March 2006

To Demonstrate how airflow can create lift.

Fc-4 Funnel and ball

Published: Monday 13 March 2006

To Demonstrate airflow.

Fc-5 The Chimney effect (Atomiser Principle)

Published: Monday 13 March 2006

To Demonstrate how perpendicular airflow can create lift.

Fc-6 Attraction of two balls

Published: Monday 13 March 2006

To Demonstrate how pressure difference can cause attraction.

Fc-7 The Pitot tube

Published: Monday 13 March 2006

To Demonstrate how airflow can affect fluid levels in a manometer.

Fc-8 Smoke Ring Generator

Published: Monday 13 March 2006

To demonstrate vortex flow via the formation of large stable smoke rings.

Fc-9 Streamline flow

Published: Tuesday 05 June 2007

To demonstrate the streamline flow around various objects.

Fc-10 Viscosity (Stokes Law)

Published: Wednesday 06 June 2007

To demonstrate Stokes law. This states that when a body moves through a fluid the viscous resistive force is proportional to the radius a and its velocity v.
