# When air is blown in between two balls suspended close to each other, they are attracted towards each other . Why ?

Q. When air is blown in between two balls suspended close to each other, they are attracted towards each other. Give reason.

Ans.     When air is blown in between two balls suspended close to each other with high speed, a low pressure is created between the balls which is much less than the atmospheric pressure beyond the balls. Due to this, balls are attracted towards each other. This is according to Bernoulli’s theorem.

### Q.  It is advised not to stand near a running train. Why ?

Ans.     When fast moving train passes on a rail, than the velocity of air streams in between the rail and the person standing near rail will be very large as compared to the velocity of air streams on the other side of person away from the rail. According to Bernoulli’s theorem, the pressure of air will become low in between person and rail and is high on the other side of person. As a result of the pressure difference, a thrust acts on the person which may push the person towards rail side and the person may meet with an accident
