In my physics class for an assessment we designed our own lab. In our lab we had plastic cups and cut small holes in the bottom ranging from 0.3 cm to 1.3 cm diameters. We then measured the amount of time it took for different volumes of water, detergent, syrup and rubbing alcohol. I understand that each of these liquids have a different density and that the amount of time for each substance to flow out of the cup will vary. Here is my question: In this lab, are we measuring flow rate or another value? How exactly can i construct a lab write up based on these variables: the density of the liquids vs the time it took to flow out the diameter of the cups vs the time it took to flow out the density of the liquids vs the diameter of the cups?
