Navier-Stokes equations

Mathematically, the motion of a fluid is described by the so-called Navier-Stokes equations. In the spirit of Newtonian mechanics, these equations should determine the future motion of the fluid out of its initial state.

Journeys in Physics

From the seventeenth century on, problems in physics became the object of careful study. These were mainly related to astronomy and the shape of the Earth, which called for organized scientific expeditions to take measurements in different places. Here we present some of these problems
