) is a good approximation of how the suspended height of the ball depends upon the other variables of the system, with all percentage relative errors below 10%, and the majority below 2%. Furthermore, it presents a physically feasible scenario as: When Q becomes large, its impact upon hbecomes insignificant. This can be attributed to the energy losses in the system made greater with increasing height between the ball and the jet. When Q becomes large, the amount that hchanges per change in Wdecreases. This can be attributed to the fact that for extremely high flow rates, any small changes in Wwill become less significant in comparison. However, there were some shortcomings of the virtual laboratory platform, the most pertinent being that very high values of Q were unable to be tested. Although this does represent the reality of most laboratories, (the maximum flow rate in air used corresponds to 169 m/s), it does not allow for testing of whether the function still accurately predicts the suspended height of the ball for extreme values of Q. However, this deficiency is minor as range of values in which the function predicts the ball height accurately spans a large range, and any higher values represent very extreme physical scenarios that are unlikely to occur.
