Difference between Magnus effect and Bernoulli

  1. Nov 20, 2009 #1

    I need some help as I’m a bit confused, subsequently, Magnus has stated that due to the velocity of the air around the spinning cylinder there will be a difference of pressure and therefore lift, whereas, Bernoulli said that there will be a lower pressure where the fluid will travel faster, thus, people are saying that Magnus is derivate of Bernoulli, yet, for me I see the same theory put by the german and swiss guys, lower pressure due to increase of fluid velocity, so I’m wrong? Is there a difference?
