How many dimples are on a golf ball?

Most balls on sale today have about 300 to 450 dimples. There were a few balls having over 500 dimples before. The recordholder was a ball with 1,070 dimples -- 414 larger ones (in fourdifferent sizes) and 656 pinhead-sized ones. All brands of balls,except one, have even-numbered dimples. The only odd-numbered ballon market is a ball with 333 dimples. Officially sanctioned balls are designed to be as symmetrical aspossible. A ball can have six rows of normal dimples on itsequator, and very shallow dimples elsewhere. This asymmetricaldesign helps the ball self-adjust its spin-axis during the flight.The USGA did not sanction it and changed the rules to banaerodynamic asymmetrical balls. The ball supplier sued the USGA andthe USGA paid U.S. $1.375 million in an out of court settlement. The number of dimples on a golf ball varies, depending on themanufacturer and may even be different for different models made bythe same manufacturer. The dimples are usually the same size as oneanother, but some golf balls have several different sizes of dimpleon the same ball. Any number between 300 and 500 dimples isreasonable, and 336 is a common number. Not just any number willdo. Golf balls are usually covered with dimples in a sphericallysymmetrical way, and for many values of N, it is impossible tocover the golf ball uniformly without gaps. Symmetry is importantor the ball will wobble or its flight will depend on which part ofthe ball is forwards or sideways as the ball spins. You can get anidea of how to space dimples uniformly around a sphere by thinkingabout the "platonic solids" -- the tetrahedron, cube, octahedron,dodecahedron and icosahedron, and placing a dimple at the cornersof an inscribed platonic solid. Variations on this theme give thecorners of Buckminster Fuller's geodesic domes, and also thepossible symmetrical locations of dimples on a golf ball. Why does a golf ball have dimples on its surface? When a golf ball is flying through the air, it has three forces onit. Two of them are gravity and drag from the air. In addition, ifthe golf ball is spinning, there will be a Magnus force on it(which may point up or down or either side, depending on how it isspinning -- the Magnus force cannot point along the flight path ofthe ball however -- see our answer on the Magnus force for moreinformation). The main goal of making a golf ball go farther however is to reducethe force of drag as it flies through the air. In general,turbulence increases drag, because the energy needed to stir theair up and make it swirl around is energy that the ball has lost.One might think that a rough ball will induce more turbulence inthe air than a smooth one, but it depends on how fast the ball isgoing. For balls going slowly through a viscous fluid, then thefluid just moves a bit to the side as the ball passes, and then itreturns more or less to where it was. If the fluid motion issmooth, we call the motion "laminar", otherwise it is "turbulent."A ball moving quickly through a fluid like the air will have airflowing in a laminar fashion in some places and in a turbulentfashion in others. Directly behind the ball there will be aturbulent "wake", and surrounding that will be smoothly flowingair. The whole idea behind reducing the drag is to make theturbulent wake small. The air that slides past the ball very close to it is called the"boundary layer". At the place where the turbulent wake starts iscalled "separation of the boundary layer" where the smoothlyflowing air departs from the ball and does not close up behind theball nicely but rather swirls around in small vortices. If theboundary layer can be encouraged to stick to the ball a littlelonger, then the turbulent part of the wake can be reduced. Itturns out that adding a little extra turbulence in the boundarylayer itself all over the ball allows the main smoothly-flowing aircurrents to stay closer to the ball and delays the separation ofthe boundary layer. Some nice pictures of balls in wind tunnelshowing this effect can be found here. There is also an increase in the Magnus force, giving the ball somelift when it is spinning in the correct direction. This force helpskeep the ball in the air longer, allowing it to travel farther. People have thought of putting dimples on everything from swimsuitsto cars to airplanes. You only get an advantage from these dimplesif the boundary layer can be made to stick longer to the object.Some cars just have vertical flat ends to them where the trunkcomes down and there is no way to reduce the turbulent wake ofthese no matter how dimpled the paint is. And the boundary layerstays with airplane wings except maybe a bit at the ends (some gaincan be made by putting small rods out on the tips or on thetrailing edges of the wings).

Why does your mom have dimples?

Answer . \nOne layer of a neat and tidy matrix overlaps the next neat layer of a neat and tidy matrix and the next layer overlaps that one. If you had one layer of a neat and tidy matrix with just single horizontal chains of atoms, and you presented it before a light, you should be able to see through it. Once the next chain of atoms are added to the top, the new atoms fill in the space that the light would pass through.

What causes dimples?

Dimples are the visible indentations in facial skin that are either permanently present on cheeks or chin, or appear temporarily while a person speaks or smiles. Dimples are one of the most dominant facial traits. Generally, dimples are present or appear on both cheeks, but sometime, a rare form of single dimple appears on one cheek. It is believed that dimples are genetically inherited. Studies have found that the parents having dimples give birth to children having dimples. Anatomically, dimples are caused by the facial muscle called zygomaticus major. Dimples are caused when your facial muscle - zygomaticus major, is shorter than normal; it pulls on your skin and forms the indentation in your facial skin. Cheek dimples are formed by the double or bifid zygomaticus major muscle.

Yes. getting your cheeks pierced DOES LEAVE PERMANENT DIMPLES. You are warned of this before getting them done.

When you puncture the muscle in your cheeks, and put something in the way of that muscle mending completely (in this case a Lebret Stud) They cheek compensates for the jewelry, and heals around it, INDEED leaving permanent dimples. That's just what happens. These piercings are also one of the hardest to heal and up keep. You must always be careful when caring for oral piercings. ALWAYS LISTEN TO THE PIERCERS ADVICE!

Can dimple piercing give you dimples?

No . You want to be careful about getting facial piercings, like the dimple piercings. Not every person is created the same way and quite often these *trendy piercings (* piercings that are not common place and very experimental, can lead to serious damage that can not be fixed with surgical procedures ) are not thought out very well nor are they performed by someone who really knows what they are doing (even if they say they do) . . Piercing the cheeks poses risks for striking saliva ducts, nerve roots and other body structures that can cause life long facial damage. Just because you saw it in a magazine doesn't mean it real, photo shop is an excellent product. So do your own research into your anatomy and think about what you want to get done before you jump into a mistake you may regret. I already have a list of over 30 women who received piercings at another studio, done by a moron who didn't know what he was doing, scarring, infections, rejection were the problems. Do your research then research your piercer before you get the work done.

How do to do dimple piercing?

Grab the phone book and look up body piercing in the yellow pages. There you will find a list of body piercing studios that would be happy to talk to you about your request. You need to realize there is more to the human body that just skin and organs. You can't go willy nilly poking holes anywhere you like without hitting major connective tissue, nerves ducts and veins and vessels. Body piercing is a regulated profession (licensing and health inspection to ensure public safety) and body piercers (good ones) have spent years learning about these structures and how to work around and with them. Dimple piercings are experimental and very risky, a clear danger exists of doing permanent deep tissue and organ damage. So consider that before you pose your request to any one, then be sure you are talking so someone who really does know what they are doing. More over be prepared to suffer the consequences of your request when it comes to getting questionable piercings. What you see on You Tube is not necessarily factual nor is it a permanent piercing that the client has no trouble with, generally far from the truth.
