- TL;DR Summary
- How is vacuum related to surface area?

Greetings all,

I'm new here and hope I'm asking this in the correct thread. So, the question is; where you have a vacuum created by a "flow through" liquid witin a large diameter container exerting suction force upon a smaller diameter input tube submerged in a liquid, does the surface area of the container determine how much vacuum is developed, or is the depth (weight) of liquid in container an equal, greater or minimal factor? Please see attached sketch. Thank in advance for any help.
