currents caused by wind
- Water tank
Material: Acrylic board Height: 10cm Depth: 30cm Width: 30cm
The whole tank was put inside a transparent acrylic cover and air currents were blown across it.6)
- Working fluid
- 80% glycerin water solution.
The kinematic viscosity is approx.
- At the center of the water tank colored water was spouted in a thin stream directly down into the water, forming for an instant a line of colored water, making the current visible.
- Experimental process
- Colored water was spouted into the tank immediately after it had been spun up.
