Why are airplane windows round?

Have you ever wondered why airplane windows have an oval shape? Can you guess what would happen if windows were square instead of round? Mechanical engineers study the forces and strains that happen in different objects as we use them. These studies allow the mechanical engineer to design the best possible shape for the objects we use to make sure that they do not break.

In this video, Professor Martin Muscat shows us why airplanes must have rounded windows.
