    Process Paper How to Make an Air-Flow Kite For nearly 3000 years, Chinese artisans have made kites. How do they fly? Air moving quickly across the surface of a kite reduces the air pressure on the kite, making it light enough to float on the current. If the air stops moving, the air pressure increases and the kite falls to the ground. This is called the Bernoulli Principle. Kites are as challenging to make as they are to fly.

  • Physics Of Fly Fishing Curren
    335 words
    The Physics of Fly-fishin " What does it take to launch an ultra-light fishing line over 200 feet? A little physics and a lot of feel for the fishing rod, that's what. The trick to doing good is to have the thinner, end of the line, land on the water first then the fly. The end of the line cushions the fly, having the effect that a fly is landing on the water, not a piece of nylon string. This may sound easy, but it's a lot harder than it seems. Just getting it to go that far is like 'pitching a...

    358 words
    The fly is caught in the web, along with a wasp. The fly's struggles simply transmit its location to the spider, who quickly overpowers and destroys the hopeless victim. The fly represents everyone who is not a wasp; the non-believer, the misled Christian, the Catholic, or the savage. Powerless against the devil, these creatures quickly fall prey without hope of rescue. Taylor shows that the wasp is a threat to the spider, while the fly is easier to trap and seize. The devil, which is the spider...

  • How A Plane Flies
    315 words
    Scientists have tried to figure out how a plane flies and although they don't agree on exactly how it does, they have a good idea. The four forces acting on a plane, Newton's Third Law, and Bernoulli's Principle all are used to explain how a plane flies. Lift, thrust, drag, and gravity are the four forces acting on a plane. Drag and gravity both act against the plane. Drag is something that obstructs the airflow, slowing down or hindering the way an aircraft moves. Gravity, as you know, pulls do...

In fact, Thomas Hunt Morgan began using Drosophila in the early 1900's to study genes and their relation to certain chromosomes (Biology 263).

Drosophila melanogaster can lay hundreds of eggs after just one mating, and ha...
