Even in sport, there are some aspects that can be logically or scientifically explained -- like Pele's famed banana kick (an off-centre kick that causes the ball to change direction midair before dropping to the ground) that works under the Bernoulli effect while there are others that have no logic at all -- like a torn 'lucky' jersey, that could not be worn by a little Messi fan sitting half a world away, that is believed to have stood between Messi and his missed penalty.
For instance, wind blowing through mountainous terrain can cause localized areas of high and low pressure due to the Bernoulli Effect. This is one of the reasons why there is additional ROC for enroute segments located within mountainous areas.
Called the Coanda effect, also referred to as the surface or Bernoulli effect, this is what causes a negatively buoyant jet of cool air to stay along the surface of the ceiling.
Taylor opens with a short history of soccer, then explains how scientific principles, such as friction, drag, and the Bernoulli effect, impact the game.
"It actually came from one of Machflow's co-founders, Art Williams, a retired physicist who came to me in 2005 with this concept of using a principle of physics called the Bernoulli effect (force a gas through a narrow pipe or channel and the pressure will go down as well as the temperature) to create a cooling system, because someone here at Clark told him I might be able to test and evaluate that idea.
Jet-engine technology (an example used throughout the book) harnesses, among other things, Newton's Third Law and the Bernoulli Effect.
