By clicking on "Course View" visitors can view a syllabus for the course and the three course units: Electricity, Magnetism, and Light (continued); Sound, Fluids, Gases,...

View Resource Condiment Diver

This site contains an activity utilizing a Cartesian diver, a tube that barely floats when placed in water. The diver is made from a condiment packet and placed in a squeezable plastic bottle where it will float, sink, or hover according to changes in pressure. The provides an explanation of what happens in terms of fluids and mechanics, lists materials needed, and offers assembly instructions....

View Resource Convection Currents

This demonstration provides an aesthetic way to view convection currents in fluids. Water warmed by an electric circuit mixes with the surrounding cooler water creating turbulence effects that bend light; the resulting swirling shadows can be projected onto a screen. The site provides an explanation of what happens and a simpler method to demonstrate the same effect. Materials needed and...

View Resource Energy Conservation (Bernoulli's Equation)

Professor Chiang Shih's Thermal-Fluids I course at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering combines "the traditional thermal disciplines in Thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics." This PowerPoint presentation, from Shih's lecture notes, illustrates Benoulli's Equation and energy conservation. Along with mathematical equations, there are also a number of illustrations and examples which...

View Resource 10 Fluid Power Lessons You Don't Learn in School

This brief lesson provides information about fluid power concepts that are normally not covered in a traditional school or industrial training course, but are important to know when working in the field. The document is available as a PDF.
