Nature of votexes and whirlpools

  1. May 30, 2014 #1
    This may come off as worded odd. However, what is the nature of vortexes? they seem to be an apparent part of nature everywhere. From pulling a plug on a drain to the shape of solar systems and galaxies. Is there a specific formula which accounts for this phenomena. It's something that has always perplexed and interested me.

    Thank you
