Most housewives use spin dryers to dry their clothes. Explain how water is removed from the clothes in a spin dryer.

PLEASE EXPLAIN! :)

    YOU EXPLAIN IT!

    We will be happy to critique your thinking. I expect you have read Newtons First Law of Motion.

  • Physics -

    Both centrifugal force and enhanced convection (and evaporation) due to the rapid rotary motion play a role.
