Bernoulli's Principle - Explanations and Demos


In 1738, Daniel Bernoulli documented that faster moving fluids exert less force on surfaces they are flowing along.  Little did he know that this discovery would eventually change the way we travel and the way some sports are played.   It also leads to a lot of good physics phun to be experienced.  Below are some specific applications of Bernoulli's principle.
