Back to business, my friends, let’s discuss the application of Hydrodynamics. If you missed the other parts of this series, here are some helpful links;
Applying this is my favorite part of science, otherwise it stays a bunch of big words in a book that’s way too heavy. I actually got bursitis in high school from carrying all my text books from class to class rather than waste time going to my locker. It still bothers me when the weather changes, Kayliegh will never know how blessed we are to have online books! So, how do we get Hydrodynamics out of the big books and into real live applications? Well, you’re doing it right now. I’ve mentioned Bernoulli previously, after all he named this field of study! While he was studying blood flowing through the veins, he began applying Hydrodynamics to blood pressure, using this fascinating field of study to better understand how our body works.
My husband is a Respiratory Therapist, so his main expertise is in the heart and lungs. When I talked to him about Hydrodynamics the first thing he said to me was “oh like Bernoulli’s equation?” You should know, though he’d hate that I said it, my husband is brilliant. Honestly, he should be writing this, it would probably make much more sense. He had a long night saving little ones lives, so we’ll have to give him a pass. I just wanted you to see how widely connected this field is with the medical field. Much of our life saving procedures today are successful thanks to a better understanding of Hydrodynamics. You’re body is currently regulating the pressure of your blood flowing from the heart to the lungs to oxygenate your toes. That is science in real life, beloved!
The other application that I wanted to point out was how this field of study has aided in understanding the great Deluge. I often have called it Noah’s flood, but that’s not accurate. Noah didn’t cause the flood, it was God’s flood, Gods judgement on a wicked, sinful generation. That judgement left a worldwide mark, which is easier to understand for Creation scientists, thanks to Hydrodynamics. Below is a clip from my favorite female scientist, a woman that has inspired Kayleigh in her studies, Dr. Georgia Purdom. Here she goes over some basics about the Deluge, some common misunderstandings, and some of those marks made.
The last application for Hydrodynamics that I want to mention, briefly, is plumbing. That might be a silly thing to mention, but when you consider our cities and the unbelievably wonderful blessing it is when we turn on fresh water to drink, wash dishes, and bath in, it might get less silly. Hear me out, friends. When I was a young teenager our plumbing stopped working. We had to drive to my grandmas house at night to take baths. As a single mom, barely holding on, there was no way she could pay to get it fixed. Then, due to some random mix up, our electricity was turned off. While the electricity company argued with my poor mom over the bills the previous owner had racked up, winter hit hard. So, we abandoned ship. We left the home, and moved into an apartment. Subsequently, she had to file for bankruptcy. All that to say this, the first time they showed us our new apartment we went from room to room turning on light switches and water faucets. It wasn’t big, and it certainly wasn’t fancy, but it felt like a five star hotel.
We’re not the first culture to figure out how water flows at certain rates depending on the pressure and angle added, but we are certainly blessed by modern technology! When you wash your dishes, or even flush your toilet, consider that men studied Gods creation long and hard before we were able to have such ease! There is much of Gods creation that we can, and should, be thankful for. Not the least is that fluids follow the laws given them, your blood will never cease to flow like it should do to a random chance change in the laws of science. The world we live in is orderly, the laws given followed, by all of Gods creation except one. Mankind. God has taken the time to write His laws in our hearts. All over the world, in every culture, lying, stealing, and murder are wrong. Yet, due to our fallen adamic nature, we continue to break His Laws. It is for this reason, dear ones, that we need a Savior. Jesus Christ, God made man, lived a perfect sinless life, and died in place of whosoever would believe in Him. Repent of your sins (lust which Christ called adultery, hatred which Christ called murder, lying, and theft) and put your faith in Christ alone. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
