Lamba point He fountain

  1. Jul 18, 2003 #1
    How would I go about calculating how high a fountain of Helium at the [lamb] point would shoot?

    Is the height a function of diamater/surface area, and height of the tube?

    Do i have to figure this out myself?

    Okay, I know it has something to do with the zero viscosity of a super fluid... and it must have an attractive forcre to solids which enables it to flow up the tube, because its not grabbing the air.......[zz)]
