Part 2 for real

Storyboard Text

  • What causes wind?
  • Oh, a difference in pressure!
  • Viscosity alone can’t account for the water being pulled into the blaster. Think about other properties that can make fluids move.
  • The combined pressure and viscous forces make up the molecular stress considerations for the fluid motion.
  • Yes! This difference is created because the water being pulled in is affected by atmospheric pressure while the pressure inside the tube is created by expanding the capacity.
  • This causes water to flow up the tube to relieve the pressure difference.
  • Have you heard of momentum before?
  • Because there is a pressure change in a contained system, there is also a change in velocity that must be considered.
  • This term to consider is called the bulk flow.
  • To evaluate it within the volume, we calculate momentum per volume.
  • It’s basically how much motion an object has and is mathematically defined by mass times velocity.
  • No, what’s that?
  • Bulk flow is evaluated both in the direction of the fluid as well as perpendicular to the flow. Yes, that’s density!
  • Do you know what mass per volume is?
  • So, if the flow is turbulent, then the flow is moving in multiple directions, right?
  • Yes, that’s density!
  • Depending on how fast the pump is pulled on the water blaster there may or may not be bulk flow to be considered.
  • Yes! And when the flow is laminar then it can be assumed to only be flowing in one direction.
  • Okay! I think I understand now. Thank you both so much!
