Ripples on Icicles
This website from the University of Toronto Physics Department provides a discussion of the instability that gives rise to ripples on the surface of icicles. A description of this instability is followed by multiple...
WFU Physics Demo Video: Boomerang (Outside and Inside)
This video demonstrates the operation of a boomerang. A boomerang is shaped such that air passing over it will cause it to lift and turn. If thrown correctly, it will return to the thrower. The video is part of a...
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...
WFU Physics Demo Video: Cartesian Diver
This video shows a demonstration of buoyancy. A small glass vessel with a hole in the bottom is partially filled with water and placed in a partially filled cylinder of water. The cylinder has a rubber diaphragm which,...
WFU Physics Demo Video: Venturi Meter
This video demonstrates the operation of a Venturi meter. The experiment shows the dependence of air pressure on the gas velocity. It is part of a collection of typical lecture demonstration videos put together by the...
