Main Question or Discussion Point

i work in a building where there is a chemistry lab above us, so there is water flowing down a clear glass tube through one of our hallways.

i was wondering if there was any way to remove energy from that system to do something cool with, even if its just making a small pinwheel spin

thanks,
sw

You probably could, but it would require installing something inside the tube, which would have to be connected to something outside. Try talking to the lab people first.

It would be a good idea to make sure that it's actually water before you go messing with it. It could be chemical waste heading for a containment bin in the basement. :surprised :biggrin:
