Abstract

We  model the height of a falling column of water in a  right circular cylinder (radius = 4.17 cm) emptying through a small hole on the side of the cylinder.  Indeed, in all the videos below where are referred to in this Modeling Scenario the cylinder is a 2 liter soda pop container with a metric ruler affixed to it for reading height in cm. The hole through which the water exits varies a diameter = 13/64 " = 0.257969 cm) in the bottom of the column.

We list videos which can be used for collecting data with appropriate information  on the configuration. The YouTube version streams faster than the SIMIODE download version. Best viewed in 720p or 1080p HD version on YouTube.
