Visualizations: Fluid Mechanics Concepts

* Given that the transmission speed and image size might not be optimum when playing the movies directly,
you can alternatively download the clips. To do this move the cursor to the hyperlink, right click the mouse,
and select SAVE TARGET AS. The files are in MPEG format, and are approximatly 100 MB each, so download
times may be long
