Problem 26DQ

In a store-window vacuum cleaner display, a table-tennis ball is suspended in midair in a jet of air blown from the outlet hose of a tank-type vacuum cleaner. The ball bounces around a little but always moves back toward the center of the jet, even if the jet is tilted from the vertical. How does this behavior illustrate Bernoulli’s equation?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution to 26D Step 1 of 1 Bernoulli's equation is considered as the conservation of energy principle applied under the scenario of fluids. According to Bernoulli's equation, as the fluid velocity becomes larger, the fluid pressure will decrease. When a tennis ball is suspended in the mid air in a jet blown from the outlet hose of a tank type vacuum cleaner, it moves towards the centre of the jet stream. The velocity of the air is highest at the centre, thus according to bernoulli's equation, then, Thus the pressure at the centre of the jet stream is the lowest, thus the tennis ball will move towards the low pressure area from the high pressure area. The ball remains there as it is held there under the force applied by high pressure air laminas.
