Science Experiments Ideas
Many physical experiments seem like magic, but there are logical explanations and laws for all the strange occurrences. Stick a thumbtack through the middle of a halved postcard. Hold it under a cotton spool so that the pin projects into the hole and blow hard down the hole. If you manage to loosen the card, you really expect into fall. In fact, it remains hovering under the spool.
Bernoullis law explains this surprising result. The air current goes through at high speed between the card and the spool, producing a lower pressure, and the normal air pressure pushes the card from below against the spool. The ascent of an aeroplane takes place in a similar manner. The air flows over the arched upper surface of the wings faster than over the flat under surface, and therefore the air pressure above the wings is reduced.
