# Physics Help Session & Bernoulli Problems, etc.

PHYSICS: Wow! I’m so proud of what I observed today in physics! You! Taking responsibility!! Warms the cockles of my heart! Well, we’ve explored a lot of different ways to use the continuity equation (Av=Av) and Bernoulli’s equation to solve problems. How did you end up doing on the Bernoulli Problems worksheet? Can I help? Help session is tomorrow morning at 7:15 A.M. Click here, if you need a copy of the worksheet: Bernoulli Problems

But speaking of Bernoulli – have you ever seen this application of the principle he discovered? WAY COOL!! If you’d like to see more, visit this website: http://www.squidoo.com/wing-suit Enjoy!

• J.T. – Not the whole day, just the class period. If you needed one more period, I might be convinced. Can’t say yet for sure.

1. Because the tornado increases the speed of the air above the house, decreasing pressure above the house. Well the pressure in the house stays the same because the wind is still inside it. This change in pressure causes the pressure inside the house to push against the pressure outside the house and lift the roof off. By opening he windows, you increase the windspeed in the house to make it equal to this speed above the house and therefore equalizing the pressure. Does that make sense?

2. I can honestly say I have never had anything that I’ve just been so compelled to do before. But this is so amazing to me, this is something that I will make every effort to do before I die. This is probably gona sound really cheesy like from a movie about skate boaders or surfers and what-not but they are so free. Flying through the air. What super power would you most like to have? My answer is always flying, this is the closest I think man will ever be to the true concept of flying like a super hero etc. you can go para-sailing, fly planes, mabye even jet packs etc. But this is flight in its purest form, nothing more than your body, a special layer of clothing and God’s wind beneath your wings. I’m inspired by this video, this is something that I definitely want to do before I die, if ever there was an extreme “sport” for me this is it.

3. I am so excited for the Explore Zone. I just can’t hide it.

4. Are the people that are missing because of the trip going to need to do Thursday or Friday nights homework yet?

5. i have never seen anything so amazing to do than Wingsuit jumping! I would like to try sometime! Amazing

6. Hey Miss Skinner, is there an equation to find the drag of a flying object? Either I missed it in the sheet or its not on it.

• On the sheet, it just says to add string to the end of each wing for drag. And then just find the average speed. And it also has what is the average altitude.

7. Interesting physics question: is everything actually bigger in Texas?

• Why don’t you conduct an experiment and find out. Possible explorezone exhibit?

• Perhaps you should use scientic methods to discover that answer for yourself. Mrs Skinner’s answer: “I don’t know, what do you think?”

8. Are we going to Six Flags??????????????????
