If you have a question about this talk, please contact Valentin Hübner.

Many specialties of physics affect the way you live your life. Electromagnetism governs your internet access and how your breakfast burrito cooks in the microwave. Acoustics controls how you should select your seat in a lecture theatre. Gravity impacts how much pain you will endure the next time you fall of your bike. Thermodynamics explains how your fridge works.

In this talk, I will take you through the many aspects of your daily life, many of them seemingly mundane, which are governed by fluid mechanics. At the end of the talk, I am hoping that members of the audience will appreciate how viewing your daily life with a applied mathematician’s eye can reveal a lot of complex – and fun – scientific problems.

This talk is part of the The Archimedeans (CU Mathematical Society) series.
