I’m taking Aerodynamics this semester with Professor Moored. This video is one he showed in class of vortex rings. We’ve been looking at vorticity for the past class or two. Although the math behind these rings is tedious and kind of hard, watching them in nature is captivating. Even though this class is complex and kind of complicated, I think it’s all leading to real knowledge of how planes fly.
Professor Moored starts the class every morning, at 8 am, with a plane of the day. I’m personally not all that interested in air planes it’s not a bad way to start the morning.
