Bernoulli’s Principle Activity
1.Hold a sheet of paper by two corners in a horizontal position near your mouth. Blowair across the top. Write your observations and explain.2.Hold two sheets of paper so that they are vertical, parallel to each other, and closetogether. Blow air between them. Write your observations and explain.3.Using the air jet from a hair dryer, suspend a ball at the top of the air jet. Write yourobservations and explain.4.Blow a dime off a table into a cup without touching the dime. Use a plastic drinkingcup and tilt it so that the lip of the cup is about 2 cm off the top of the table and about2-3 cm from the dime which is placed 1-2 cm from the edge of the table. It looksimpossible, but if you
blow hard and sudden and parallel to the table top
, it hopsin. See ﬁgure 1. Explain using Bernoulli’s Principle.Use the equation P =
to ﬁnd the minimum value of the velocity of the airyou blow. The density of air is 1.29 kg/m
.List the information you need in order tocalculate this velocity.
