Shown here is a schematic of the rotating disk and how the fluid underneath it moves in response. Notice that the flow near the disk is essentially thrown out to the sides while away from the disk the fluid is effectively pumped towards the disk. There are essentially two separate processes in play here. Far […]

The first problem here will discuss a technique used by geologists to characterize stone. A sample of the stone to be studied is rotated at high speed in a bath of concentrated acid and the products of its dissolution are measured over time. From this information one can properties of the stone. To be specific, […]
