    Water vacuum pipe

    i guess that at 33ft (1 atm) the water column pressure will equalize with the outside pressure . At 34 ft height, the additional 1ft height will flow out leaving 33ft of water. what about the relation between the volume of water in the bowl and the height of the column (volume in the column)...

    Water vacuum pipe

    hi to everyone, i have the following question, see attached image. a vertical pipe containing water is exactly 28ft tall. at the top (A) the pipe is tight shut. at the bottom (B)the pipe is open and ends in a bowl of water. since no air can enter the pipe, the water remains within the pipe...

    Water column displacement physics?

    Hi, in this setup we have a bucket of water 10 kgs of water inside. Attached is a weight meter measuring that in fig a. The weight is exactly 10kgs. In fig b. A piston (red) is being pulled by a weight (z). "z" has a pull force equivalent to the volume of the column of water above the piston...

    Vacuum submerged in vacuum

    so B is the correct option. the vacuum box, once ruptured would simply suck inside it a quantity of the water equivalent to its internal volume. no ""air gap"" will be created at the top of the column. thank for all the replies. i have understood the physics behind this setup.

    Vacuum submerged in vacuum

    hi to all, this one may sound silly but i just can't seem to understand how it will work out. this is the setup - in a vertical water column (state of vacuum) a hollow box is attached to the base. all air from the box has been sucked out and the box contains a vacuum(fig A). if the lid of...

    Vacuum pump question

    what if the balloon is made of elastic material that will cause it to contract by itself if there is no air inside?the elastic material will create the outside pressure needed will this solve the problem and lead to the expected result as shown in Fig 2? thanks

    Vacuum pump question

    thanks Nessdude, i am looking a creating at least 80% vacuum (rough vacuum). the comment regarding the shape of the balloon was very helpful. if i understood right even if all the air is sucked from the balloon it will maintain its initial inflated shape although it is "empty"? and that...

    Vacuum pump question

    hi to all, i have been trying to find some similar project solution on the internet but so far have found nothing, so i am posting here. here is the setup ( see attached picture) : in "fig 1" a metal chamber, perfectly sealed contains inside it a balloon filled with air (red color). the...

    Ferrofluid pressure question

    Yes, i have. Everywhere the quotes PSi is in the range of 4-6 PSI. I have never read anywhere of higher psi. That is the reason i am asking.

    Ferrofluid pressure question

    Hi to everyone, i wanted to ask if a ferrofluid exist that can withstand a pressure of 50 Psi? Does the "strenght" of the liquid depend on the strenght of the magnetiv field? Are there any such ferrofluids, or is this too much for the fluids available on the market? Thanks

    Gravity question

    see attached image. A "W" shaped pipe. Column A - ordinary tap water.Column B-salted water,33%salt just like Dead Sea water.there is no contact between the two columns of water. An air pocket is trapped inbetween the two columns. What will be the behaviour of this setup based on the difference...

    Styrofoam object- rise or sink?

    i have a 30 ft pipe - 10" diameter. there is a constant water flow at the top, keeping the water level constant ( the pipe is always full to the top). at the bottom the water just flows out of the basin and away. the pipe is is just 1" underwater in the pool underneath. the yellow object is a...

    A little brain teaser )

    ok, forget the frictionless seal detail, what i mena is there is no loss of water...i.e. all water leaked out below is compensated above, so water level remains constant. thanks

    Is this correct (buoyabcy forces - irregular object)?

    hi, i have an irregular object submerged in water . i would like to verify if i've understood the forces that act on this: sides A & F - downward force due to weight of water above objects sides E & D - left nad right force - neutralizing each other sides B & C - upward buoyancy force how...

    Newbie needs some help kw/rpm relation

    theory check: i have a hydro site that has generates 2000Nm of torque at 100rpm. this has been calculated at 20.95 kw. i am looking to attach a low-rpm PMG making 20kw at 250 rpm. if i use a gear box to achieve the 250 rpm (leading to a gecrease in torque 2,5 times=800Nm) will i be making the...
