### Compressibility factor and deviation from ideal gas behaviour

I have recently started to study the deviation of ideal gas behavior. The source from which I am reading doesn't give me an intuitive understanding of the compressibility factor. I dont understand how ...

### How to explain the Venturi effect with Kinetic Theory?

From a macroscopic perspective a fluid flowing through a pipe gets accelerated when the pipe's cross section gets narrower. According to $F= ma$ a force must be present to do this. This force is ...

### If a flywheel is spinning at say 1,000 rpm, would an input of 500 rpm would actually slow it down? [closed]

When a flywheel is stationery, an input of 500 rpm would translate to less than 500 rpm in the flywheel considering entropy, but what happens if the flywheel is already running at 1000 rpm, wouldn't ...

### Circle elastic collisions

I have two circles, they have differenti masses and they are both moving. Then they collide, but how do I calculate the circles' final X and Y speeds
