# Bernoulli's Principle and Shapes

Hard
Have you ever wondered how airplanes stay in the air? It's all thanks to Bernoulli's Principle! This experiment will explore how the pressure of a fluid changes when the speed of the fluid increases, and how this affects the lift of different shapes.

## Hypothesis

The hypothesis is that Bernoulli's Principle operates the best with objects that are in the shape of an airfoil.

## Method & Materials

You will use a fan, 3 treads, 3 sheets of light but stiff cardboard, a roll of scotch tape, and a ruler to explore how the pressure of a fluid changes when the speed of the fluid increases, and how this affects the lift of different shapes.

## Results

The results showed that the strip in the shape of an airfoil was lifted the highest, proving that Bernoulli's Principle operated the best in objects that were the shape of an airfoil.

## Why do this project?

This science project is interesting and unique because it explores how the pressure of a fluid changes when the speed of the fluid increases, and how this affects the lift of different shapes.

## Also Consider

Experiment with strips of cardboard that have different thickness and weights to observe the results, or use winds of different speeds.
