Navigation and Propulsion in Fluids
Lecture no. 16 from the course: 12 Essential Scientific Concepts
Taught by Professor Indre Viskontas | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
How has our greater scientific understanding of fluid mechanics given us the tools to move (and dominate) the land, sea, and air? How do we power the machines that allow us to do so? What’s the difference between form drag and skin friction? What’s actually happening when your plane hits turbulence?
