Title: Pumped stream by Tungsten and Stroboscopic light

Description: The Edgerton Piddler in action as seen by the continuous light of a tungsten bulb and as seen through a rotating disk "mechanical" stroboscope (cheaper than electronic version!). When the single slot stroboscope rotates at the same rate as the Piddler delivers drops the drops appear to hang in midair. Slight changes in disk rate of rotation cause stream of drops to appear to slowly move downwards ... or upwards!

You can see examples of splashes, convection, schlieren, etc. in a
