Magnus Effect is referred to as a happening where a spinning material that flies in a fluid creates a whirl of fluid around itself and hence, experiences a force that is perpendicular to the line in which the action takes place. It was invented by H.G. Magnus in 1853 who was a German Physicist and Chemist. It should be noted that when the spinning material is passed through the fluid it gets deviated from its straight way because of the differences in pressure that is created in fluid due to the fluctuations speed generated by the spinning material. Magnus Effect is the main reason for the bending movement in the spinning ball in various sports in which ball is used. Further, it also affects the rotor ships, spinning missiles, etc.

You can find Magnus Effect in sports such as tennis, cricket, volleyball, table tennis, football, golf and baseball. Actually, it develops a force on the spinning objects, which are spherical or cylindrical in shape, from the sides when they are dunked in a fluid. However, remember that the fluid is either gas or liquid.
