Smoke Ring Physics
Huggins, Elisha
Physics Teacher, v49 n8 p488-492 Nov 2011
The behavior of smoke rings, tornados, and quantized vortex rings in superfluid helium has many features in common. These features can be described by the same mathematics we use when introducing Ampere's law in an introductory physics course. We discuss these common features. (Contains 7 figures.)
