Exploring Torricelli's theorem with Arduino
We explore the dynamics of the water in a PVC pipe during the drain using two independent sensors simultaneously. We track the height of the water column and the discharge velocity of the water through the hole made in the lower part of the pipe. The ultrasonic distance sensor and the flow meter used as sensors were controlled by an Arduíno board. The acquired data follows the theoretical models but, with a coefficient of discharge smaller than 1.
