Why does water go down the plughole a different way once you cross the equator?
If you're looking to find out if the theory is true that it spins differently in the 2 hemispheres, it is true. In Uganda, right on the equator there was a demonstration of this gravity effect. They had a large funnel on each side of the line, about 20 ft away, and one right on the line. They poured water in, set a leaf on the water for visual aid, and stilled the water. When they released the hole in the bottom, the water spun opposite directions on the 2 sides. When they did the same test on the line itself, the water didn't spin at all. It dropped straight thru the hole. When the dish became just a tiny bit off center, the water began to spin. Only directly in the center of the equator did it not spin. Amazing!

It may go down the drain in any direction, depending on previous conditions, and the shape of the drain. Coriolis effects are too small to be noticeable at such a small scale.
Although the principles of coriolis forces are well established, the forces involved in water going down the drain are so small that coriolis has less effect the the beating heart of the observer. So forget it--it's urban legend.. Er, the link below is to a demonstration on YouTube of the coriolis …effect at the equator, showing that water does indeed go straight down. . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZU1EB0z-h7w (MORE)

Contrary to popular belief, the water is not affected by the motion of the Earth, or by which hemisphere the bowl is in. Water drains in a downward direction. How water goes down the plughole is determined by the state of the water when the plug is pulled, the construction of the bowl, and the sh…ape and size of the plughole. It doesn't always go the same way. The vortex direction is dependent on small local factors, and the slightest impulse (motion, temperature) makes it unpredictably random. On a larger scale, the airflow into cyclones in the Northern Hemisphere is counter-clockwise, and in the Southern hemisphere clockwise. So if the Coriolis effect were the dominant factor, that would be the direction of the draining. (MORE)
If the meaning behind your question is "does the water go clock-wise or counter clock-wise down a sink or toilet" then the answer is, it depends on the design of the sink or toilet, try this yourself, fill a sink up, pull the plug, when the water is going down (say clock-wise) swirl you finger in th…e water counter clock-wise and the water will go down that way, proving that it does not matter.

If standard equation for water pressure is p equals dgh why do all the calculators on the internet seem to uses p equals dh What is going on Which way is correct?
To get pressure at given depth:. P = rho x depth. rho is weight density, say lb/in^3. For water, that is about .0361. depth is the depth, say in inches.. P is the pressure. Using the units described for the other measurements, it comes out lb/in^2, or PSI for short.. The difficulty with most ca…lculations like this is making sure your units are all consistent. (MORE)
People often believe that water goes clockwise or anti-clockwise depending on which hemisphere you are in due to the Coriolis force of the Earths spin. This isn't true. The direction water curls down the plug hole depends completely on whether the water is still or moving in a certain direction b…efore the plug is removed. But don't depsare!!! The Coriolis force DOES have an effect on large whirlpools in the ocean, just not in sinks and baths. (MORE)
Wow I've never seen this on a Pacifica, but I have on other makes of cars. I can think of 3 possibilities: 1 (cheapest), you need to bleed the brakes. 2 (still cheep), look for vacuum leaks, especially the main line to the master cylinder, although other vacuum leaks can transfer problems to your br…ake system. 3 (expensive, seriously check the others first), the master cylinder has faulty seals and needs replacement. Lastly have someone stand on the brakes (hard) with the engine running and look under the car for any break line leaks. (MORE)

When you go out in the heat your face turns bright red and you have to set down and find a way to soak yourself with cold water what could this be a symptom of?

Sure, there are many. A couple of simple examples would be: x = (9 - 8) * (7 - 6) * (5 - 4) * (3 - 2) * (1 - 0) x = 9 - 8 - 7 + 6 + 5 - 4 - 3 + 2 + 1 - 0 You're not limited with that though. Consider: any value other than zero, when raised to the power of zero, is equal to 1. This means that yo…u can take any combination of the other numbers, and as long as they are not equal to 0, then you can raise them to the power of zero to get an end result of 1. For example this equation: x = [â7 * 2 / 6 5 + 8 - â« 1 3 (4x 9 )dx] 0 is just as valid as the ones given above. (MORE)
It may go down in any direction - depending on how the water was spinning at first. If the faucet which you use to fill a container is ever so slightly inclined to the left or to the right, this will give the water a spin that will last for at least a day. Coriolis effects - effects due to the rotat…ion of the Earth - are usually quite secondary. (MORE)
On the average, it goes directly toward the center of the earth, although it may proceed via a circuitous route, including circular rotation in either direction.
Answer: anti-clockwise Answer: It may go down the drain in any direction, depending on previous conditions, and the shape of the drain. Coriolis effects are too small Tobe noticeable at such a small scale.
When water disappears down a sink, it goes through pipes and eithergoes into a septic system in the city or a septic tank in thecountry.
Water drains clockwise or counter-clockwise depending on many factors, such as the shape of the drain and basin, the velocity vector of the injection water, etc. Unless the drain is very, very large, on the order of many miles, the effect of the difference in planetary rotational speed north or sout…h of the equator (the so called Coriolis effect) is inconsequential. However, as can be seen from the rotation of hurricanes, the Coriolis effect tends to "turn" moving objects to the right. But the flow into a Northern Hemisphere hurricane moves in a counter-clockwise direction (moving from higher pressure to lower pressure). This would be the case for water draining with no other influence. In the Southern Hemisphere, this would be reversed to clockwise (as are cyclonic flows). But generally, smaller local factors make directional draining unpredictably random. (MORE)

Contrary to popular belief, it has nothing to do with the latitude or the Coriolis effect. Toilets and sinks drain in the directions they do because of the way water is directed into them or pulled from them. The Coriolis effect is the reason why hurricanes rotate clockwise in the southern hemisph…ere, and counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere. But you need a very large amount of moving air and water for it to take effect. (MORE)

I guess it all depends on the orientation of the fart's... errrr... source ... Apart from that, once released, the motion of the fart depends on its density. Assuming that the fart was mostly methane (a poor assumption, but it'll have to do), you can see that the density of the fart was about… 0.7 kilograms per cubic metre (kgm -3 ). At sea level, Earth's atmosphere is about 1.2 kgm -3 , that is, it's denser than the fart. This means that the fart will float, thus it will go up (and stink out the whole building). (MORE)

The twisting effect of the Coriolis force is real and does influence certain large things like the movement of air masses, but the effect is so small that it plays no role in determining the direction in which water rotates as it exits from a draining sink or toilet. The Coriolis effect produces a m…easurable effect over huge distances and long periods of time, such as storm systems, but don't apply to your bathroom or kitchen. Toilets and sinks drain in the directions they do because of the way water is directed into them or pulled from them. The configuration of taps, drains and the surface of the bowl is responsible for the direction of the water draining through, overwhelming the coriolis effect. It's a bit of a urban myth. People on the equator sometimes demonstrate it to tourists, but these are rigged. (MORE)
Latitude has no effect on the direction a toilet flushes. The Coriolis Effect cannot influence such small-scale processes.
Since the crosses used in crucifixions were shaped like a T, it depends whether you want to go for historical accuracy or stereotype. Besides, crucifixes are missing the point. Jesus is no longer on the cross.
There is obviously a clog. Steps I would take: Use a plunger if that doesn't work, use a drain cleaner like liquid plumber if that doesn't work, rent a plumbing snake if that doesn't work, call a plumber.

The sun dries it up and it disapears or the dirt soaks it up and something grows. If it is a lot of water, the clouds pick it up and turn it into rain. :D

Why wont your toilet bowl go all the way down when flushed everything in the tank has been changed out and the water level is as high as it will go it flushed fine a week ago?
Something stuck in the drain, the main drain has collasped or has tree roots growing into it or the vent in the roof has become plugged. A good plunging is the first step. Next, fill a 5 gallon bucket with water and pour it in the bowl as fast as it will take it without overflowing. This may flush o…ut a clog since it is a much larger volume of water than usual. Tree roots you can make a guess about depending on any trees that may be in the line of the drain. You can get root remover that you flush down the toilet that kills the roots. It may need to be cleaned to clear the line. Another consideration- if the toilet was fine on a flush and now is "backing up" seek out any inspection chamber on your property, this is usually in a garden covered by a cast iron plate. Check if you can by lifting this access point that everything from the house is passing down, you may see this is blocked and could be an issue where the main drain is backing up to the property. If its clear using VERY soapy water have someone pour that down the toilet, it will seep through if there is a block and you may see in the inspection area the bubbles. Frequently things that block a toilet are the frames that hold toilet bowl cleaning blocks that have come loose and started to capture paper-waste on the way down or even female sanitary ware which frequently will catch on a small sewer fracture and cause a blockage. In these cases a jet wash may be the best way forward. Also check any other water outlet's that bathroom i.e. a hand basin, watch the water go down there. If its fast and the basin outlet is merged to the toilet (most are) then the sewer line is clear and the block is probably in the "S" bend of the toilet. (MORE)
