That is the reason swimmers try to make their bodies as compact as possible as they move through the water.
I decided to set up an experiment to investigate with my kids how water resistance slows larger objects moving through the water.
In our experiment, both, play dough shaped like a ball and play dough shaped like a triangle, dropped down like a rock, while the pancake took some time to float down in a fluid circular fashion. They predicted that aluminum foil crumpled into a tight ball would sink and a flat piece of aluminum foil will float, but all pieces floated.
We added stones we collected at the beach and experimented with stones in a foil in many different ways. Then we hid two stones in a flat, folded piece of aluminum and it shot down like a rock. hen we experimenting with folding the foil around stones in different ways to see, which fold made it sink faster or slower.
The consortium aims to improve the way biological medicines, also known as biopharmaceuticals, are produced, with a goal of bringing down costs and finding ways to get the drugs into the hands of clinicians and patients faster.
The new curriculum development effort is just one of several cell manufacturing research projects ongoing at Georgia Tech.
Today I want to talk about water resistance in relation to Olympic Swimmers.
Water resistance goes up as the surface area of a submerged body increases.
“Cell-based therapies have the potential to benefit many patients, but to achieve that we need a highly skilled workforce to support the growth of the cell manufacturing industry,” said Chuck Zhang, the principal investigator of this project and Harold E.
