science side of tumblr, please explain
Air on bottom go woosh. Air on top go woosh. Air on front go woosh. Little plane stay still.
Thank you, science side of tumblr.
So far as I can tell, yes, woosh is the how of it. Low-pressure (moving) air is keeping it suspended. If you were able to move both the fans carefully at the same time, The plane would probably move with them.
For more explanations of woosh and a demonstration of the aforementioned movement, I turn the stage over to Julius Sumner Miller, for physics is his business. Watch, ye shall not regret.
Part 1, introducing Bernoulli’s principle via pointing a compressed air hose at many things with great enthusiasm, spraying puffed rice everywhere, and collapsing oil cans with an exclamation of “That’s terrific! That’s so terrific, I’m going to do it again.”:
Part 2, in which he suspends styrofoam balls in place on a single angled stream of air, and plays about with fantastic old children’s toys:
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, that is how woosh.
