Science of Swimming | Hindi

Published on 27 Jun 2018 / In Science & Technology

There are a large number of sports that involve water. Swimming is one of them. Swimming requires a lot of energy as compared to the work done in air, because air (gas) is very different from water (liquid). The biggest difference is that water is much more dense (the same volume of it weighs much more) and viscous.

The main force which causes difficulty in swimming is Drag Force (water resistance).Three types of Drag forces faced by swimmer are- Form Drag, Friction Drag, Wave Drag.

This video will explain how these forces work and how to use them to our advantage in swimming.
