  • Air Pressure On The Kite
    422 words
    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. This kite is sure to provide hours of fun. Supplies String Ribbon Pape...

  • Damage To Internal Pump Components

    CAVITATION Cause and Effect The word cavitation is a process that a Hydraulics Technician does not want to encounter. Cavitation can occur due to entrained air bubbles in the hydraulic fluid or vaporization of the hydraulic fluid. This occurs when the suction lift is excessive and the inlet-pressure falls below the vapor pressure (pressure which a liquid starts to boil and thus begins changing into vapor) of the liquid. As a result, air or vapor bubbles, which form in the low-pressure inlet regi...

    The Physics Of Scuba Diving: Swimming with the Fish Have you ever wondered what it would be like to swim with the fish and explore the underwater jungle that covers two-thirds of the earth's surface I have always been interested in water activities; swimming, diving and skiing, and I felt that scuba was for me. My first dive took place while on a family vacation. I came across a dive shop offering introductory dives, which immediately caught my interest. After much convincing (my parents), with ...
  • Dive Knife In Case The Diver
    2,027 words
    Many people think of scuba diving as just a swim in the water, but in reality it is a very exciting, dangerous, and potentially fatal sport and activity. There are many types of scuba diving, ranging from recreational to sport to career diving. Scuba Diving is just not a swim in the water, scuba requires certification, uses technical equipment, and there is a lot of risk involved with scuba diving. Scuba, which is actually an acronym for "self-contained breathing apparatus", Allows divers to div...
  • Known As Torricelli
    630 words
    EVANGELISTA TORRICELLI Every time you turn on the TV or radio and hear a weather forecast, one man is responsible for the birth of meteorology, the science of predicting the weather. His name is Evangelista Torricelli, an Italian scientist and mathematician. In 1643, he invented perhaps one of the most important devices in predicting weather: the barometer. Evangelista Torricelli was born October 15th, 1608 in what is now known as Faenza, Italy. Little information is known about his early years ...

    Weather is a fascinating subject. It is such an intricate and amazing process, which our mother earth goes through on a daily basis. All over the world, weather seems to be a very important aspect for our everyday lives. For instance; sunny weather can bring on a very harmonious and beautiful atmosphere, while cloudy and rainy weather can bring about tragedy. In 1998; the earth experienced an El Nino which brought on fierce weather, flooding, and hurricanes. Weather systems are very broad and de...

    Conan Poi tra The SA 227 family of aircraft are low wing monoplanes, built by Fairchild Aircraft Corporation. These aircraft include the Merlin IIC, Merlin IVC, and the Metro. These three aircraft are powered by two turboprop engines equipped with constant speed, full feathering, four blade, reversible propellers made by Do wty-Roto l, or McCauley propellers. The cabin is pressurized, heated and cooled by bleed air which is ducted through valves, heat exchangers, and refrigeration unit. The air ...
  • Tank With O 2
    3,905 words
    Mixing Trimix consists of helium, oxygen and nitrogen. Nitrogen is free and pretty much all over the place. Helium and oxygen are available at your local gas supplier. What kind of helium does not matter, just ask for an analysis of the type you have access to, if it is 99.9 percent pure, it does not matter what the designation is. The purpose of this web site is not to get into how to obtain O 2 and He, there are too many regional differences to pigeon-hole this topic. Suffice to say, where the...
  • Engine With Compressed Air Power
    3,437 words
    Using an electric hybrid leads to a significant improvement in vehicle fuel economy. Unfortunately, it also leads to a substantial increase in cost. Regenerative compression braking offers another way to achieving the same objective without incurring the same cost penalty. With some modifications, the vehicle engine can perform both absorption and recovery of braking energy, using compressed air for energy storage. The process parallels the one employed by electric hybrids, but it requires none ...
  • Air From Rooms

    Airborne Virus Control in Hospitals There are many examples of infectious aerosols affecting occupants of health care facilities. It is expected, patients are often the main source of infectious cases, and their presence is a potential hazard to other patients and to employee. Certain infectious such as tuberculosis, chicken pox, measles, and Germen measles can be spread easily in air. Employees and visitors can also be the reason of airborne infection on patients. Airborne droplets often carry ...

    Being that we are the third rock from the sun, we constantly are interacting with its' atmosphere and weather. Meteorology plays a constant role in our everyday lifestyle. It affects us as individuals also businesses such as agriculture as well as travel. It is important to understand the fundamentals of how this meteorology system works. First of we all know that the sun gives out heat. Along with the heat the sun also sends out energy in the form as solar radiation. Solar radiation can pass th...
  • Air Pressure
    472 words
    Air is composed of molecules. Air is matter. It has mass and takes up space. Air is composed of different gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, water vapor, and other gases. Air molecules are in constant motion. As they move, they come in contact with surfaces. Air molecules push and press on the surfaces they contact. The amount of force per unit area that air molecules exert on a surface is called air pressure. (What is Air Pressure 6) Air pressure is caused by all of the air molecul...

  • Circulation Of The Earth's Atmosphere
    750 words
    Atmospheric Circulation And More Atmospheric Circulation And More Essay, Research Paper Atmospheric Circulation and More The global energy balance and atmospheric motion mainly determine the circulation of the earth's atmosphere. There is a hierarchy of motion in atmospheric circulation. Each control can be broken down into smaller controlling factors. The global energy balance is an equal balance of short-wave radiation coming into the atmosphere and long-wave radiation going out of the atmosph...
  • High Pressure Air
    333 words
    Bernoulli's Principle Bernoulli's PrincipleBernoulli's Principle Essay, Research Paper Bernoulli's Principle Daniel Bernoulli, a Swiss scientist, stated that fast moving air results in lower pressure than slow moving air. Which means high pressure air always moves towards a lower pressure area. The force of the moving air is called lift. If this principle had not been discovered, airplanes may not even be here. Lift, pushing up on an airplane's wing, is the way airplanes stay in the air. The sho...
