  • What Is The Magnus Force?

    3:47

    Whenever an object spins through the air it experiences a 'Magnus Force' due to friction between the air and the object's surface. This force was originally identified while studying the trajectories of cannon balls (though earlier observations of this effect exist). The Magnus force is essential in most ball sports including golf, cricket, tennis, and baseball.

    At the end the ball demonstrations were conducted with a 100 mm diam polystyrene ball and the launcher was made by bending a long, thin, aluminum rod and bolting the ends to a block of wood as a handle.

    Music was provided by Kevin McLeod (incompetech.com) Scissors and a stock clip from FCP.

  • Why Are 96,000,000 Black Balls on This Reservoir?

    12:07

    I took a boat through 96 million black plastic balls on the Los Angeles reservoir to find out why they're there. The first time I heard about shade balls the claim was they reduce evaporation. But it turns out this isn't the reason they were introduced.

    Huge thanks to LADWP for arranging this special tour for me. Next time let's put the GoPro on the submersible!

    The balls are made of high density polyethylene (HDPE) which is less dense than water so they float on the surface of the reservoir even if they break apart. They are 10cm (4 inches) in diameter and contain about 210ml of water. So the main reason they are on the reservoir is to block sunlight from entering the water and triggering a chemical reaction that turns harmless bromide into carcinogenic bromate. This effect occurs with prolonged exposure to bromate so regulators insist that levels be kept below 10 microgram per liter on average over a 12 month period.

  • The Perfect 3-Point Shot: Spin vs. No Spin

    11

    The myth goes like this: A shot with no backspin will hit the rim and then tragically bounce away with no chance of going in. In contrast, the magic of spinning somehow slows the ball down during the impact(s) and thus increases the chances of scoring.

    Now, is this true or just the mythology of “shooter’s touch”?

  • The Science of Curveballs

    4:07

    For more info, please see
    In baseball and cricket the best pitchers and bowlers know how to make the ball move due to the effects of aerodynamics. If one side of the ball is rough, the ball swings towards that side because turbulent air 'clings' to that side of the ball and is deflected. Although baseballs and cricketballs appear symmetric, they can be made to fly through the air with a smooth or rough side by judicious angling of the seams combined with the axis of rotation.

  • Hydrodynamic Levitation!

    6:09

    On a stream of water you can levitate light balls of all sizes and even disks and cylinders. The mechanism is not the Bernoulli effect...
    Want to make this at home?

    My friend Blake from InnoVinci emailed me with a cool idea for a video and footage of levitating balls in water streams. Initially it was tough to explain the physics of what was going on. The standard Bernoulli effect relies on the object being completely immersed in the upward-flowing fluid. But in this case the water seems to form a single stream around the object and it's deflected away and down from the stream. By Newton's third law, the force on the water by the ball is equal and opposite to the force of the water back on the ball, pushing it up into the stream. There is a stable equilibrium position because if the ball moves into the stream, it cuts off the water going over the ball so it drifts out. If it drifts out too far, then lots of water passes over the ball, pushing it back into the stream.

  • ???? MAGNUS EFFECT and DYNAMIC LIFT || for Class 11 in HINDI

    12:36

    In this Physics video in Hindi we explained the the Magnus effect and dynamic lift for class 11. We explained why airplane gets lift and why football swings. As the airplane moves its wings pushes the air donwards and according to Newton's third law air pushes the wings upwards. Spinning ball also pushes air in one direction and hence it gets deflected in opposite direction. This effect is named after a German experimental physicist Heinrich Gustav Magnus.

    Dynamic lift is the force that acts on a body, such as airplane wing, a hydrofoil or a spinning ball, by virtue of its motion through a fluid. In many games such as cricket, tennis, baseball, or golf, we notice that a spinning ball deviates from its parabolic trajectory as it moves through air. This deviation can be partly explained on the basis of Newton's thisd law.

    This dynamic lift due to spinning is called Magnus effect.
