    I am going to try to test laminar flow using playing cards. I think that the faster a card spins, up to a point, the better the laminar flow, and thus the further it will travel.

    What does everyone else think?

    I am not clear what you are testing. What do you mean by saying you are going to test laminar flow? Which aspect of it? You have confused me.

    Well I am testing to see what effect spin has on laminar flow. I will then try to determin why the soin has this effect. I plan on testing this by doing multipul trials in which the cards would be thrown two ways, with and without spin.

    You stgill haven't told us which aspect of laminar flow you are investigating, nor even approximately how you plan to assess this effect.
    My confusion has given way to puzzlement.

    Well, the testing has changed in the past two hours, but what I am going to try to do is, use a wind tunnel and smoke, to see the effect that spin of a card has on the laminar flow. I will have cards in the tunnel that don't move to see the inital flow, and then I will try to find a way to create spin with the cards in the tunnel so that I can see the changed effect of the flow on the card.

    I am not sure what you mean by which asspect of laminar flow I'm testing, but I do know that I am testing more to how lift is changed by the spining of the card.
