Here , we have two water filters and buckets .
Now , we know that as the water falls down , it’s speed increases because of acceleration due to gravity.
Let us say I started both the filters and once the water reaches the bottom of both the buckets.of course , water from 2nd filter would have had reached first at the surface of 2nd bucket.
Assume that exactly when the water touches the bucket form both the filters. Only then , I start the timer. Now , I am recording or noting the time it is taken by both filters to fill the bucket.
Volume is same of both buckets.
The Q is : Which bucket will fill up first ?
I think both the buckets would fill up at the same time.
Now , I also noticed as the water keeps on dripping at longer heights. There is a separation between water molecules present. You can see most of the water at below the tap and it’s amount kind of like looks fo reduce as you go down.
This is what confused me. From this observation , I think 2nd bucket should fill up faster than the 1st one.
Why ? Because if I imagine the separation between the bucket and water at an extreme level. Then , I can see like drops filling up the bucket and not like a stream of flowing water.
Is this correct ? Also , I’m not getting how should I write an equation for this.
I did research about it. It says that :
A decrease in temperature caused the water molecules to lose energy and slow down, which results in water molecules that are closer together and a decrease in water volume. When water is heated, it expands, or increases in volume. When water increases in volume, it becomes less dense.
Therefore , can I say my observation is true only depending on the temperature?
