Fortunately for AirMotion Sciences, our engineers have a good grasp of physics and are able to apply their know-how to the design, manufacture, and performance of AirMotion Next Generation HVLS Fans. In its simplest form, the concepts involve the theories of Isaac Newton.
Newton's Laws of Motion -
Sir Isaac Newton's three Laws of Motion address the relationship between the forces acting on a body and the motion of the body. The laws form the basis for classical mechanics and are used to explain many aspects concerning the motion of physical objects, including air masses.
- First law - An object at rest tends to stay in rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion in a straight line at constant speed unless acted upon by an external, unbalanced force.
- Second law - The rate of change of momentum of a body is proportional to the resultant force acting on the body and is in the same direction.
- Third law - To every action (force applied) there is an equal and opposite reaction (equal force applied in the opposite direction).
By understanding Newton's three laws, and having an appreciation for thermodynamics - which is a branch of physics focused on the movement of energy and how energy instills movement (thermos means heat in Greek and heat means 'energy in transit' while dynamics relates to 'movement') - we have designed AirMotion Next Generation HVLS Fans to make the most use of the physical properties of moving air masses efficiently.
Since air has mass, once it starts moving - as inertia is overcome - the momentum of the flowing air mass allows for continuous air circulation and mixing, requiring little ongoing effort to maintain. Moving more air with larger blades, rather than a larger motor, enables greater volumes of air to be moved with a fraction of the energy used in typical high-speed fan applications.
We have figured out the science and related physics so you don't have to.
