I am taking an introduction to fluids class and the topic of the magnus force came up. The effect of the magnus lift force on an object moving through a viscid flow makes sense to me, but the problem is that the professor also mentioned that there is also magnus lift when a ball rotates through inviscid flow. This doesn't make sense to me since there is slipping between the fluid particles and the rotating ball. How could the rotation of the ball affect the fluid in this case.
