View Resource Oil Tankers

This website on oil tankers, authored by United Nations Atlas of the Oceans, explains how their size is a consequence of how their volume and surface area scale up. A cross-section diagram shows how the relative size of oil tankers has grown from the 1950s to the 1990s. Limiting factors on the size of tankers are also discussed.

View Resource Pascal's Principle

This site from HyperPhysics provides a description of Pascal's Principle, which explains how pressure is transmitted in an enclosed fluid. Drawings and sample calculations are provided. Examples illustrating the principle include a hydraulic press and an automobile hydraulic lift.

View Resource WFU Physics Demo Video: Floating Ping Pong Ball

This video demonstrates that a ping pong ball can "float" on a stream of air. The air rushing around the ball creates a pressure low enough to lift and support the ball, even when the ball is not directly over the air source. As long as the low pressure spot is under the center of mass of the ball, it will stay "afloat". This is part of a collection of demonstration videos put together by the...
