Bernoulli’s Principle on Board the International Space Station

Bernoulli's principle describes the relationship between velocity and pressure in fluids. As the velocity of a fluid increases, the pressure exerted by that fluid decreases. As a result, Bernoulli’s principle guides everything from the design of airplanes to ventilation systems. Explore more with the Teaching from Space Team.

Aerodynamics: What Causes Lift?

Did you know that for an airplane to fly, its wings need to produce lift? Lift is produced not by lifting the plane up, but by pushing air down. Find out how in this multimedia presentation from NOVA. More...
