View Resource Hydrodynamics and viscosity

Hydrodynamics and viscosity: This site contains a complete description of fluid properties and fluid mechanics by defining the nature of a fluid, show where fluid mechanics concepts are common with those of solid mechanics and indicate some fundamental areas of difference, introduce viscosity and show what are Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids and define the appropriate physical properties and...

View Resource MHD I: Demonstrate Magnetohydrodynamic Propulsion in a Minute

Remember the silent caterpillar drive from the movie The Hunt for Red October? The caterpillar drive was a fictional magnetohydrodynamic propulsion system. Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) propulsion is a means of using electrical current, instead of a noisy propeller, to push a ship through the water. Surprisingly enough, a working example of this futuristic drive system is quite easy to build....

View Resource Drop Formation

This site from the University of Bristol’s Mathematics department contains an explanation of drop formation and its applications. A description of studies of drop separation and its applications in medicine and technology are provided. The site also contains photographs, including a series of images showing the formation of a satellite drop.

View Resource Viscosity Of Liquids - Experiment

Classroom experiment to illustrate the viscosity of different liquids by measuring how quickly pebbles sink through them. The site describes all of the required material for the experiment and also gives a detailed chart for recording the results of the experiment. Altogether, the site is a great activity for the classroom.

View Resource MIT OpenCourseWare: Transport Processes in the Environment, Fall 2004

Part of MIT's innovative OpenCourseWare Project, that provides materials from MIT classes to the public on the web, the site outlines a class on the physical processes by which materials, such as pollutants, are transported in the environment. The course focuses primarily on transport through water. The site provides a syllabus, calendar, lecture notes, homework assignments, and links to...
