New Books!

First, I want to apologize for not getting a post out yesterday, I worked until 10pm and just didn't feel like using the computer when I got home (although it's not that valid of an excuse because I worked just as late tonight). Anyway, I'm not going to do a huge post tonight as I have to be at the Wodonga Middle Years College in the morning to meet with the teacher that I'll be spending the semester with during the in2science program. Exciting, to say the least.

I also got my physics and chemistry books that I've been craving oh-so badly. The semester for both subjects technically started last week, but the book store is slow and I haven't had any books, so consequently couldn't do any reading. I was happy to sit down and read the first couple of chapters of the chemistry book, which made me think of tonight's comic. I really wanted to do something simple because, as I said, it's late and I need to be up in the morning, so I hope you guys enjoy it, or at least get it.

And before you know it, she'll want to have quarks!

I've also decided not to join the Golden Key Society, as I've heard far to many bad things about it to justify risking 90 of my dollars on it when I can barely afford food. Thanks to everyone that offered advice on the subject, I appreciate it.

So to finish off the post, another competition! It's simple enough, and I'm sure someone will get this very easily; just name the phenomenon that this picture is illustrating. I would also appreciate a short description on what's going on.

I'm all up in your planes, makin' dem fly, yo.
As always, a personalized picture for the winner! Have a lovely evening everyone.

  2. looks like bernoulli's principle... difference in height changes the difference in velocity of the flow

  3. Almost there thuganomics, but I can't give it to you for that. The principle is correct, but the explanation isn't really, and I'm looking for the name of the effect happening.

  8. I think we have a winner with burger! Although, I would have liked an explanation as to what is happening.

    That will probably come in my next post if no one cares to answer here.

  9. Whew! The first real application to the chemistry classes it took!

  10. "The Venturi effect is the reduction in fluid pressure that results when a fluid flows through a constricted section of pipe." -Wiki :P

  11. hahaha...the science is beyond my comprehension.

    In addition: the comic made me spit on my monitor

  26. i wouldve said it's a hydraulic effect, but i didn't know about the venturi principle...

  27. I like the illustration, but I have no idea what all that math is about...

  28. aww I missed the wiki action. *sad face*
