Island 5 Fluid Dynamics
Mechanics and Structures
POP students work through building instructions to build exciting models such as a submarine, a hydraulic platform, a hydrostatic tower, communication vessels, a siphon device and a catamaran.
Island 5 Fluid Dynamics-Archimedes Principle, Buoyancy and Streamlines.
Using Engino Fluid Dynamics
Fluid Dynamics-Archimedes Principle, Bouyancy and Streamlines.
One of the most important areas in physics is the study of fluids and their fundamental principles. dWater and air are the two most important elements for life and both are categorized as fluids. Air motion is what determines the temperature in our rooms. Pipelines are providing water to our homes. Industrial and construction machines use hydraulics to easily lift heavy objects. Airplanes and ships change direction by using aerodynamics and hydrodynamics respectively. Have you ever wondered why objects sink into water, while others float? How does blood flow in our body? How do water tanks operate? POP students will build six different models, including a boat and a submarine, as well as various experimental rigs to learn all about fluid dynamics!
