Air-flow levitation

Bernoulli's Principle levitation 1

Bernoulli's Principle suction 1

Bernoulli's Principle suction 2

  • Air-flow around ball causes nonintuitive levitation and stability.
  • A nozzle connected to the air-blower creates a narrow stream of fast moving air.
  • Ball can be levitated directly above air nozzle, or at an angle.
  • When funnel is connected to air hose, air flow around ball creates lift, preventing ball from falling, even when air flow is directed downwards.
  • Blower, nozzle and funnel located in L35. Ball in L02 section A2.
