Set of Bodies for Air Resistance Experiments
The Set of Bodies for Air Resistance Experiments is a set of seven wooden models, used for measuring buoyancy and fluid resistance of various bodies in laminar air flows. The set of bodies are on stems and a storage block is included, keeping the bodies neat and secure.
The bodies have varying properties, with different shapes, sizes and textures. This allows the user to observe how different factors affect air resistance and buoyancy, a useful aid to the study of aerodynamics.
Contents of the Set of Bodies
- 1 x streamlined body, smooth, l = 120mm
- 1 x streamlined body, rough, l = 120mm
- 1 x ball, d = 50mm
- 1 x circular disc, d = 47mm
- 1 x circular disc, d = 68mm
- 1 x hemisphere, d = 50mm
- 1 x wing profile, l = 150mm
For air resistance and buoyancy experiments, the following equipment is needed for use alongside the Set of Bodies:
