Welcome


The title says it all: this blog features physics videos found everywhere on the web: animations, demonstrations, lectures, documentaries.
Please go here if you want to suggest other nice physics videos, and here if I mistakingly infringed your copyrights. If you understand French, you'll find a huge selection of physics videos in French in my other blog Vidéos de Physique.

Channel Flow of a Compressible Fluid

The purpose of this film is to demonstrate several effects of compressibility which are important in any attempt to produce or control a supersonic internal flow.  The heart of the subject is the behavior of a compressible gas flowing at high speed through a converging-diverging nozzle.  Tne film therefore begins with the phenomenon of choking, or sonic flow at a throat.  Some examples of shock waves and expansion waves are shown in passing.  Finally, the film takes up the problem of bringing a supersonic stream efficiently to rest.
