Interactive Wind Powers.

"Wind Scale Puzzle" is a small knowledge level game to sort the winds on the correct speed. Physics knowledge exercise to explore and study the Beaufort Wind Scale and 13 forces of winds. Fun educational game, suitable for online lessons and interactive classes. Free online game for physics homework. Online physics educational game. Fun physics quiz.

This physics class game include the following wind powers:
  • Beaufort Force 0 - Calm: less than 1 mph (0 m/s) Smoke rises vertically
  • Beaufort Force 1 - Light Air: 1 - 3 mph 0.5-1.5 m/s Smoke drifts with air, weather vanes inactive
  • Beaufort Force 2 - Light Breeze: 4 - 7 mph 2-3 m/s Weather vanes active, wind felt on face, leaves rustle
  • Beaufort Force 3 - Gentle Breeze: 8 - 12 mph 3.5-5 m/s Leaves & small twigs move, light flags extend
  • Beaufort Force 4 - Moderate Breeze: 13 - 18 mph 5.5-8 m/s Small branches sway, dust & loose paper blows about
  • Beaufort Force 5 - Fresh Breeze: 19 - 24 mph 8.5-10.5 m/s Small trees sway, waves break on inland waters
  • Beaufort Force 6 - Strong Breeze: 25 - 31 mph 11-13.5 m/s Large branches sway, umbrellas difficult to use
  • Beaufort Force 7 - Moderate Gale: 32 - 38 mph 14-16.5 m/s Whole trees sway, difficult to walk against wind
  • Beaufort Force 8 - Fresh Gale: 39 - 46 mph 17-20 m/s Twigs broken off trees, walking against wind very difficult
  • Beaufort Force 9 - Strong Gale: 47 - 54 mph 20.5-23.5 m/s Slight damage to buildings, shingles blown off roof
  • Beaufort Force 10 -- Whole Gale: 55 - 63 mph 24-27.5 m/s Trees uprooted, considerable damage to buildings
  • Beaufort Force 11 -- Storm: 64 - 73 mph 28-31.5 m/s Widespread damage, very rare occurrence
  • Beaufort Force 12 -- Hurricane: over 73 mph over 32 m/s Violent destruction

How to play Wind Scale Puzzle.

There are 13 wind power pictures of tree and sea at the top of the screen. In the middle, there is the Modern scale of forces acording to Beaufort. Drag and drop the pictures in the correct wind speed on the scale. Place all the winds for less than 14 tries for a good school mark.

Knowledge Achievements:
Know the power of winds and get +1 Knowledge Level.
Difficulty: Easy.

Class subject: Beaufort scale.

The Beaufort scale is an empirical measure that relates wind speed to observed conditions at sea or on land. Its full name is the Beaufort wind force scale.

The Beaufort scale is not an exact nor an objective scale; it was based on visual and subjective observation of a ship and of the sea. The corresponding integral wind speeds were determined later, but the values in different units were never made equivalent.

The initial scale of thirteen classes (zero to twelve) did not reference wind speed numbers but related qualitative wind conditions to effects on the sails of a frigate, then the main ship of the Royal Navy, from "just sufficient to give steerage" to "that which no canvas sails could withstand".

This fun physics quiz may answer the following questions:
  • What is Beaufort scale of wind force?
  • How is Beaufort scale measure?
  • What is considered strong wind in mph (Miles per hour)?
  • what is considered strong wind in km/h (Kilometres per hour)?
  • what is considered strong wind in m/s (Metre per second)?
