Bernoulli’s Equation: Roots and Uses

June 24, 2020

Bernoulli’s equation originated from a Swiss physicist’s book in 1738. The equation is vastly used in pipe issues and explains the relationship between a fluid’s speed and its pressure. The equation was written in a more modern way by another physicist in 1752, and the original concept was combined with energy conservation. […]

Can Bernoulli’s Equation Explain How Planes Fly?

June 24, 2020

A common way to explain how planes fly is Bernoulli’s equation. Briefly, it is believed that the difference of pressure above and below the airplane’s wings make it fly, according to Bernoulli’s equation in fluid speed and pressure. The shocking fact is that the explanation is genuinely wrong. […]

How Plane Wings Work: Speed, Pressure, and Circulation

June 24, 2020

Despite all the misconceptions about flying, it can be explained through how wings work and what happens around them. Surprisingly, it is not the difference of pressure above and below the wing that makes the plane fly, as it cannot create enough force to lift the plane even. Then what do the wings do? […]

Exploring Venus: Earth’s Twin Planet

June 23, 2020

the Earth’s twin planet is Venus due to their similarity in size, mass, proximity to the Sun, and bulk composition. However, this ‘twin’ is so different in temperature, atmosphere, rivers, and winds that it is hard to assume it as Earth’s twin. […]

What Is the Atmosphere, Pressure, and Temperature Like on Venus?

June 23, 2020

Despite being Earth’s twin planet, Venus’s atmosphere is so different from Earth’s that its winds are many times more severe than Earth’s most tremendous hurricanes. Other than the wind, the surface heat of 850oF and the extreme atmospheric pressure make this twin an actual hell. […]

Venus’s Surface and Its Natural Phenomena

June 23, 2020

Venus’s surface has traces of rivers that were most probably running lava. Other than that, the hurricanes, acid clouds, and lead-melting temperatures make Venus distinctively different from the Earth, its twin planet. […]
