Title: Venturi

Description: Air is blown through the funnel and the curvature of the streamlines over the top of the graduated cylinder causes a pressure drop (Euler's n equation) and sucks the black fluid up. Notice as the distance between the funnel and the cylinder increases, the airflow disperses more, the curvature is less and therefore so is the suction.
