    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

    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...

    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...

    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...
