Transcript of The Physics of a Frisbee

-The Bernoulli principle is defined as: The pressure in a fluid decreases as the speed of the fluid increases. The Physics Principles -Two things influence the flight of a Frisbee: Gravity and Air. The Physics of a Frisbee -Lift is the force that keeps a Frisbee in air. Thank you for viewing my Presentation Any questions? By Nick Altemus -Once in the air, these physics principles take place: Lift, angular momentum, and angle of attack. -The Bernoulli Principle also influences the flight of a Frisbee. The Bernoulli Principle -As the Frisbee cuts the air, half of the air pressure flows over the top while the other half flows underneath, allowing the Frisbee to fly straight (If thrown right). Lift, Angular momentum, Drag, and Angle of attack -Angle of attack is the angle of which the Frisbee is thrown. -Angular momentum is created by the Frisbee's spinning motion. -Drag is the opposite of lift, which pulls the Frisbee down (with the help of Gravity). Other influencing factors -The grip of the Frisbee is one of the main influences on how to throw successfully. -Flick your wrist. -Aim at your target.
