I have to submit a report based on this following experiment.
I have a plastic bottle with 4 holes located about 1cm above the base of the bottle. The four holes are covered with tape. I'm to fill the bottle with water and observe the flow of water coming out of the holes when I release the tape. I did this experiment and the flow of water was stronger,with some resistance to the gravity, at the beginning and gradually dies down until the container became empty. I will have to write a one-page report about this experiment, explaining how the water flows out of the bottle and what my observations say about the pressure the water exerting on the wall of the bottle.
The Attempt at a Solution
I'm thinking of Newton's 3 laws and I would suggest that the flow of the water inside the bottle is stronger initially due to the more mass. (F=MA) As the bottle drains the water, the total mass inside the bottle become lighter and the total force becomes weaker.
I would like to know how I can elaborate on my explanation.
I'm taking a introductory physics course (for humanities students). Thank you.
