In this post I am going to give the complete information on how to make water vortex working model (water fountain) inspire science project – diy
Creating a water vortex working model using a water bottle and a DC water pump is a fascinating project that demonstrates the formation of a vortex or whirlpool effect.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to making the model:
Materials you will need:
- Empty water bottle (500 ml or 1-liter size)
- DC water pump (submersible or surface pump)
- Small pipes or tubes
- Wires and connectors
- 9V battery or AA/AAA batteries with battery holder
- Battery snap connector or terminal connector
- Hot glue gun or adhesive putty
- Prepare the water bottle:
- Remove the cap from the water bottle and make sure it is empty and clean.
- Position the DC water pump:
- Place the DC water pump inside the water bottle. If you are using a submersible pump, ensure that it is securely positioned at the bottom of the bottle. If you are using a surface pump, position it near the opening of the bottle.
- Connect the water pump to the battery:
- Connect the positive (red) wire of the water pump to the positive terminal of the battery snap connector.
- Connect the negative (black) wire of the water pump to the negative terminal of the battery snap connector.
- Add small pipes or tubes:
- Attach small pipes or tubes to the outlet of the water pump. If you are using a submersible pump, the tubes should extend from the pump and reach the surface. If you are using a surface pump, position the tube to direct the water downward into the bottle.
- Test the water vortex working model:
- Submerge the water pump (if it’s a submersible pump) or ensure that the water pump is positioned inside the bottle (if it’s a surface pump).
- Connect the battery snap connector to the battery. The water pump will create a flow of water, causing a vortex or whirlpool effect inside the bottle.
This model demonstrates the fascinating phenomenon of a water vortex or whirlpool, which is commonly observed in natural systems like whirlpools in rivers or tornadoes in the ocean.
It’s an engaging project to learn about fluid dynamics and the physics behind vortex formation.
