The foundation of this experiment employs some basic physics involving the mechanics of fluids. A tube with a tiny hole in the bottom is topped with water and due to pressure differences and gravity the water flows out of the tube. The interesting part here that’ll allow is to explore calculus was that the water didn’t flow at a linear rate. If you were to employ Bernoulli’s equation or Poiseulle’s equation you could determine what all the parameters are in get some neat data but we explored the basics of instantaneous rate of change vs. average rate of change.
