Applied laws of gravity and fluid flow

  1. Aug 31, 2012 #1
    A cylinder, open at both ends, laying flat level is to be filled with a substance that will harden as cement.One end has a 90 elbow attached at one end in order to fill cylinder.The cylinder is 25 ft long and 1 ft in diameter.Will gravity alone take the fluid to the very end of the cylinder filling it completely before exiting at ends or not?
