Fountain Connection


Fountain Connection looks like a Tornado (Vortex) Tube, yet its purpose is to make an erupting fountain instead of a swirling tornado. In fact, this fountain seems to defy both logic and the laws of nature. Use this experiment to study gravity, air pressure and partial vacuums. We use it at conferences to fool the really smart physics teachers. If you like the Tornado Tube, you'll love this one too! Use the fountain connection to demonstrate the science of vacuum and compression. Use 2 plastic soda bottles, add the connection and water and watch the water bubble and spurt a fountain out the tube.
