Pressure Flasks

Let's put Dr. Mundane on notice - the pressure's on and change is in the wind!

Can you summon up the force needed to move water through the tubes from one flask to other using only the power of air? The four valves at the front of the exhibit allow you to control the airflow into the flasks; some increase it while others decrease it. Cover two of the valves and observe what happens. Does the water level change? What combination will give you the push you need to get things flowing in the right direction?

CONCEPTS: air pressure, energy transference, displacement, inquiry.
