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.

(1) This is an mp4 video in which the exit hole for the water is 5/64 in.
