### Does moving air suck in air from left and right of its path? [closed]

When air is made to move (e.g. by a fan) it has a lower pressure than when it is still. Essentially, this moving air should become a low pressure zone relative to the static air around it and the ...

### What is meant by “surge” in fluid mechanics?

When reading about the action of opening a volume at vacuum submerged in a fluid at pressure, the fluid is said to "surge", i.e. to fill the void space (the vacuum). Per Google, surge is defined as a ...

### Basis for Derivation of Stokes Friction Law for Spheres

When deriving Stokes law one uses the Navier Stokes equation with the assumptions: low Reynolds number stationary flow in compressible flow leading to this version of the N.S : \nabla p = \...

### Acceleration of an bubble under the sea [duplicate]

An air bubble arises from the bottom of the sea. Find its acceleration if resistance force is proportional to $\rho Av$ where $\rho$ is density of water, $A$ is cross section area and $v$ is velocity ...

### Navier Stokes : what about angular momentum?

I play with CFD for a while, and suddenly, a transcendantal question raises: :-) Navier Stokes is basically Newton applied on a continuum in Eulerian. For solids, we would consider linear, but also ...
