Anatomy and Physiology is a dynamic textbook for the two-semester human anatomy and physiology course for life science and allied health majors. The book is organized by body system and covers standard scope and sequence requirements. Its lucid text, strategically constructed art, career features, and links to external learning tools address the critical teaching and learning challenges in the course. The web-based version of Anatomy and Physiology also features links to surgical videos, histology, and interactive diagrams.
This webpage from Exploratorium provides an activity that demonstrates the Bernoulli principle with readily available materials. In this activity a table tennis ball is levitated in a stream of air from a vacuum cleaner. The site provides an explanation of what happens, asks questions about the activity, and also describes applications to flight. This activity is part of Exploratorium's Science Snacks series.
Demonstrate the Bernoulli Principle using simple materials on a small or large scale. This resource includes two activities that allow learners to experience the Bernoulli Principle, in which an object is suspended in air by blowing down on it. Use this activity to explain how atomizers work and why windows are sometimes sucked out of their frames as two trains rush past each other.
This is the second of two videos where Sal derives Bernoulli's equation. In the second half of the video Sal also begins an example problem where liquid exits a hole in a container. Created by Sal Khan.
This lesson introduces students to the concept of air pressure. Students will explore how air pressure creates force on an object. They will study the relationship between air pressure and the velocity of moving air.
Created to accompany Exploratorium AMNH, ts guide helps visitors fully explore the 35 hands-on exhibits. The PDF guide for this bilingual exhibit is available in Spanish and English. It contains a glossary of terms, and activities and questions to guide visitors along five different exhibit paths:Things that TurnĺŃan exploration of rotation and how its physical laws allow us to understand the world around usFluids in MotionĺŃa look at how liquids, gases, and even granular solids moveCan You Believe Your Eyes?ĺŃan experiential journey designed to demonstrate the risks of making conclusions based only on past experiencesChange One ThingĺŃan exploration of the scientific approach and the value of changing one variable at a timePendulum PlayĺŃa look at the remarkable properties of pendulums
Sal solves a Bernoulli's equation example problem where fluid is moving through a pipe of varying diameter. Created by Sal Khan.
Fluid Mechanics problems for the WeBWorK open online homework system. Includes problems from second-year level.
The "tested" problems have been deployed in a class. The "untested" problems have been tested by the creators, but not yet deployed in a class.
These problems need to be uploaded into an instance of WeBWorK to use/assign them.
Explore pressure in the atmosphere and underwater. Reshape a pipe to see how it changes fluid flow speed. Experiment with a leaky water tower to see how the height and water level determine the water trajectory.
Students calculate the viscosity of various household fluids by measuring the amount of time it takes marble or steel balls to fall given distances through the liquids. They experience what viscosity means, and also practice using algebra and unit conversions.
Clarification of, and more thoughts on, the Bernoulli's equation example problem where liquid exits a hole in a container. Created by Sal Khan.
The People's Physics Book v3 is intended to be used as one small part of a multifaceted strategy to teach physics conceptually and mathematically
