By a princess

Intro

Well IÕm going to give you $10 if you know what heronÕs fountain is hahahahaha just kidding you probably all ready know what it is or you wouldnÕt be looking it up right. IÕm going to teach you about what a HeronÕs fountain is, some history, and how it works. Lets go.

 

What it is

What HeronÕs fountain is? According to wikipedia. Herons fountain is a hydraulic machine that was obviously invented by the 1st century inventor known as Heron. It is a hydraulic machine that uses the pressures of air to run. And uses water to force air up and down and stuff. That is so awesome!

 

What does it do. According to omsi. So it uses pressure and gravity so you add water to the funnel tube and goes to the lower bottle the air pressure makes it so it goes to the third bottle and then it shoots out the top. It is that easy to make!

 

 

 

The History

Who created HeronÕs fountain. According to wikipedia . Heron's fountain is a hydraulic machine created by the inventor, mathematician, and physicist Heron he is also known as Hero of Alexandria. Wow I didnÕt know that!

 

What heronÕs background is? According to library.thinkqest.org. Heron also known as hero of Alexandria Heron was believed to be born in 20 AD and die in 62 AD. Heron was well known for his knowledge in geometry and geodesy (a branch of math dealing with the shape and area of the earth large amounts of it). He made many devises including, a water organ, fire engine, a coin-operated device, and the aeolipile. That is so cool!

How it Works

How heronÕs fountain works. Aborting to wikipedia Heron's fountain is no a motion machine, if the nozzle of the spout is narrow it may play for several minutes but it eventually will stop. The water coming out of the tube will go higher than the height in any container but the net flow of water is downward. the air pressure between the tow lower containers providing the positive pressure to lift the water. I think it is really cool and interesting.

Other inventions Heron made. Aborting to wikipedia. the first vending machine,  the apologize, and a lot of other stuff. That so cool!

 

Conclusion

 

So that is my report. I hope you liked it! And remember I am not giving you $10. So remember what heroes fountain is because I am not giving you my report again and you should only read my report once!  OR ELSE!!!!!!!!!
