Ping Pong

Life in Moving Fluids, by Steven Vogel.
Figure 10.12. If a solid body such as a cylinder rotates as it translates through a fluid, the resulting asymmetry of flow generates a force normal to the free-stream flow. We call this force lift. Adapted from Life in Moving Fluids by Steven Vogel.
Me playing ping pong at the University of Kansas, circa 1980.
