the ship with spinning cilinders... is it really more efficient than a "standard" ship? you need fuel to provide the necessary energy needed to spin those for hours... and they look like they weigh a lot. My point is, to make a ship move forward you have to make a lot of air go backwards. In order to do that, you need cylinders to spin very fast, and that needs an energy source to overcome internal drag due to more moving parts. Is the vantage of having those cylinders worth it? (i could be way wrong, i haven't made any calculations)

would the air going with the ball be moving slower relatively compared to the air going against the spin of the ball causing the high pressure on the front to push it the other way? or where am I wrong on this

Does Magnus effect affects time of falling? I mean does it kind of "break" the law of falling objects-when two objects on the same height are dropped, one with vertical speed, they hit the ground at the same time....

Мой лайк !!! модератору сайта. Углядел связь с эффектом Магнуса.
cs@df Подшипник быстроборотистый
На обоймах ролики не формируют Магнус-смещение. Не образуются магнус-задиры между роликом и обоймой. Соответственно не образуется трение и , соответственно, тепло. Ролик и обойма не сплавляются даже на быстрых оборотах.

If I jump out of a plane, and curl up in a ball, should I spin forward or backward?

Googelplus SucksysGoogelplus Sucksys (6 месяцев назад)
Depends on whether you want to go forward or backward. Unfortunately, no direction will keep you in the air longer though, as this effect only works perpendicular to the direction of motion.

Hey Derek, I have an engineering question that is not related to the video, but I hope you can help:

Why are there so many different types of wings, especially on fighter aircrafts. Shouldn't there be a standard wing whose shape is optimised for a particular task, be it speed, manoeuvrability, efficiency etc? If you look at the YF-23, which is supposed to perform the exact same task as the F-22 Raptor, they both have very different wing designs. Is one really better than the other?

I have been puzzled by this question or a long time and I can't seem to find the answer to my question anywhere. Do you know where I can learn more about wing shapes and how they affect the performance of an aircraft? (Or perhaps could you make a video on wing shapes? :))

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read through all the comments. I hope you can help answer my burning questions :)

Your videos are educational and informative, not to mention awesome. I have watched every single one of them! They have helped inspired me to be mire curious about my science and the world, and Veritasium 2 is extremely thought provoking, hope you keep producing awesome stuff!

Googelplus SucksysGoogelplus Sucksys (6 месяцев назад)
According to Wikipedia, the YF-22 was more agile than the faster, stealthier YF-23. What you have to appreciate is that there are many ways to complete any given mission and two different designers will almost always make different designs, because they have different knowledge and experience as well as different science and technology available to them. Finally, they may value different properties differently: what weapons it can carry and in what amount, how much maintenance it needs, how long airfields it needs, acceleration, cruise speed, top speed, minimum speed (for ground attack aircraft), climb speed, stall speed, altitude ceiling, radar capabilites, radar avoidance capabilities, how much fuel it can carry, loiter time, range, expense, aerodynamic properties (agility, handling, stability), and so on and on... even aircraft with the same mission can have different properties and need different wings, or have different wings even if they are the same, because they want to achieve slightly different things. On and on and...

Googelplus SucksysGoogelplus Sucksys (6 месяцев назад)
All fighter wings are perfectly adapted (according to the engineers, anyway) to the aircraft it carries. But, since all fighter aircraft are different, the wings must be different. Sorry to say: obviously! The YF-23 was a test aircraft (AFAIK) and never went into full production, suggesting it was quite significantly worse than the Raptor wing indeed! Here's the Wikipedia entry you need (it's glorious):
