Making a current
- Water tank
Material: 10mm thick acrylic board Height: 6cm Depth: 6cm Width: 195cm
The tank was set on a tripod for heavy camera so that it can be tilted at an arbitrary angle.
This tank is about half size of Thorpe's experiment.3)
- Working Fluid
- Salt water and pure water
- Ink was mixed with the salt and pure water, making the boundary layer visible.
- Experimental process
- The same amount of salt and pure water are poured into the tank, which is then placed exactly horizontal. The tank is then tipped at an angle when the boundary layer has settled.
