Blow Bernoulli Blow

What are the forces that act on airplanes that allow them to fly?

What are the forces that act on airplanes that allow them to fly? That is the focus of Mr.O's most recent O Wow Moment video, where he takes a look at Daniel Bernoulli's famous equation, confronts the controversy surrounding the Newton vs. Bernoulli debate, and, most importantly, answers the question -- what can you do with a leaf blower and a roll of toilet paper?

Mr. O’s “O Wow Moments” help you to become an scientist at home with hands-on, minds-on experiments and demos! Watch Mr. O every Saturday morning during the 7 a.m. news on Houston's KPRC Local 2 to see a new science demo you can try at home. Share your experiments with us on facebook and Instragram!
