Product Details

A wonderful pressure and vacuum demonstration. In 62 A.D. Hero of Alexandria described a water fountain that used compressed air to lift water to a point higher than its origin. Using two 2-liter pop bottles and the Fountain Connection, you will construct a simple fountain demonstration that will reveal the principles behind this phenomenon.
