Textbook Problem

Tornadoes and hurricanes often lilt the roofs of houses. Use the Bernoulli effect to explain why. Why should you keep your windows open under these conditions?

To determine
The effect of hurricanes and tornadoes on the roof of the houses and why windows must be kept open at the time of hurricanes and tornadoes.

Explanation

From Bernoulli’s equation,

P+12ρv2+ρgy=constant

  • P is the pressure.
  • y is the altitude.
  • v is the speed.
  • g is the acceleration due to gravity.

From Bernoulli’s principle, as the speed of air increases, pressure decreases in order to conserve energy
