Beads and Chemistry

Ask me anything   Submit   Sometimes I make a mess with ink and call it art, and green speaks to me.


    Hydraulic jumps occur when a fast-moving fluid enters a region of slow-moving fluid and transfers its kinetic energy into potential energy by increasing its elevation.  For a steady falling jet, this usually causes the formation of a circular hydraulic jump—that distinctive ring you see in the bottom of your kitchen sink. But circles aren’t the only shape a hydraulic jump can take, particularly in more viscous fluids than water. In these fluids, surface tension instabilities can break the symmetry of the hydraulic jump, leading to an array of polygonal and clover-like shapes. (Photo credits: J. W. M. Bush et al.)
