Lopez-Arias, T.; Gratton, L. M.; Bon, S.; Oss, S.
Physics Teacher, v47 n8 p508-512 Nov 2009
The tendency of fluids to follow, in certain conditions, curved profiles is often referred to as the Coanda effect. A simple experiment modeling the common teapot effect, the curling of the liquid around the beak when it is poured, can be used in the classroom to illustrate simple dynamic principles and basic fluid dynamics concepts as well.
