How to make Hovercraft with Balloon at home | DIY SCIENCE EXPERIMENT
In this video, I made a Hovercraft using a balloon and CD. But before talking about Balloon Hovercraft, let just, first of all, get to know, what is Hovercraft?
A hovercraft, also known as an air-cushion vehicle or ACV, is an amphibious craft capable of traveling over land, water, mud, ice, and other surfaces. Hovercraft use blowers to produce a large volume of air below the hull, or air cushion, that is slightly above atmospheric pressure. The pressure difference between the higher pressure air below the hull and lower pressure ambient air above it produces lift, which causes the hull to float above the running surface.
For stability reasons, the air is typically blown through slots or holes around the outside of a disk- or oval-shaped platform, giving most hovercraft a characteristic rounded-rectangle shape. Typically this cushion is contained within a flexible "skirt", which allows the vehicle to travel over small obstructions without damage.
I made this hovercraft by using a CD, Balloon, and a cylinder. First of all, I pasted a cylinder structure to the CD from one side by using hot glue or anything. One the other side of that cylinder, I pasted a balloon on that side.
And that's all, everything is done.
