Saturday Morning Science: Siphons

10 am to noon
Taught by Mark Kent


While the word siphon is sometimes used to refer to a wide variety of devices that involve the flow of liquids through tubes, in the narrow sense it is defined specifically as an inverted U-shaped tube through which liquids can flow uphill without pumps. Such a tube is above the surface of the reservoir and the fall of the liquid as it flows down the tube under the pull of gravity powers the siphon: the liquid is discharged from the tube into a reservoir that is lower than the surface of the initial reservoir.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
