The idea of following experiment was accidentally (or maybe not accidentally) casted by a volume of Pushkin.
He wrote a poem about the fountain.
So what secret has the fountain of tears? Why water of this fountain is dripping in the form of “tears”? Let’s try to imitate these «tears».
Place filter paper in a form of cone into a funnel that is fixed in a tripod over a beaker. Pour Borjomi into a funnel. Turn the bottle over the funnel and fix in this position. And let’s see what will happen next!
Water follows in portions from a bottle (or in “quanta” if you want) 🙂
By the way, you can make automatic drinking bowl for your hamster based on the same physical phenomenon 🙂
