Physics 2-27-12 Bernoulli – Part 1

PHYSICS: So were you surprised about the effect of change in surface area on the velocity of water, and especially the pressure of water, flowing through a tube? Thaaaaat explains how a calm ride on a lazy river can turn crazy in just a few seconds! Here’s the lecture from Monday on Bernoulli – Part 1. Today we concentrated on quantitative applications of Bernoulli’s Principle and a few practical applications. Tomorrow we’ll take the practical applications to an even higher level (pun intended!). That’s the part I like best. 🙂

Physics 2-21-12 Pascal’s Law

PHYSICS: Did you realize that fluids could produce that much force? Make’s you wonder at the awesome way God designed those beautiful under water sea creatures to withstand so much pressure, doesn’t it? This little creature is a lionfish from the waters of Lembeh, Indonesia. Oh, and here’s the lecture from Monday on Pascal’s law and hydraulics and the like.
