Bernoulli Box

An early computer disk onto which one could store several megabytes of memory. It was introduced in the 1980s and was made largely obsolete with the introduction of Zip drives in the mid-1990s. Bernoulli Boxes resembled floppy disks.

These experiences make it difficult to accept the concept of Bernoulli's Principle. (p.
For example, the gaseous lead will be cooled quickly after ejection due to the venturi effect, or Bernoulli's principle.[8] This will cause it to resume a solid state quickly following the production of x-rays, and as a solid it will drop to the bottom of the x-ray chamber.
(1) Bernoulli's principle was published in 1738, and at that time fan output was defined as static pressure that was meant to refer to local static pressure.
According to the FAA's Pilot's Handbook Of Aeronautical Knowledge (FAA-H-8083-25A), "Whenever an airfoil is producing lift, the pressure on the lower surface of it is greater than that on the upper surface (Bernoulli's Principle).
Begin the lesson by introducing students to Bernoulli's Principle. Bernoulli's Principle states that a decrease in pressure occurs as the speed of a fluid increases.
To illustrate Bernoulli's Principle and help students better understand how the shape of a wing can provide lift, I give my students two strips of paper (2.5 x 20 centimeters, or 1 x 8 inches) and ask them to predict what will happen when they do the following:
His style is witty, and his presentation is thoughtful, as he clearly explains refraction, the Doppler shift, and Bernoulli's principle. Times Bks, 2003, 210 p., hardcover, $25.00.
That's important, says [America.sup.3] design director Jerome Milgram, because "when the flow of air is faster, its pressure decreases." That's a rule of physics called Bernoulli's principle. Result: The fast-moving air on the bulging side of the sail creates a low-pressure zone there.
Because according to, Bernoulli's principle, as the flow of a fluid (any liquid or gas) speeds up, its pressure drops.
