Default It sucks, but which way?

Hi,

Just to throw in a little humor here as the 'lift' thread heats up:

Assume you're gliding in a Piper Warrior or Archer doing 80 knots in no wind
conditions with the engine at idle. If you try open that little air vent on
the pilot's left, it is forcibly sucked outwards. Makes sense until you
think that the air outside is standing still while the air inside is doing
100 knots and should therefore have a lower pressure!

Hilton,

You have asked one of the easier questions related to pressure....it's the
dreaded merconian effect.

Gotta go fly,

Stephen

And if the pilot's pencil fell out of the visor, I guess they should be
slammed against the back of the cabin at 100 knots, right?

If that was true....all engines with a carb would be falling out of the
sky and to the side of the road right now......

Aren't they? Every carburetor-equipped aircraft I ever saw came down
eventually.
