We used a computer controlled cylinder to pump fluid behind a rubber membrane to fire toroidal vortices out of the vortex cannons.

We fixed one of the vortex cannon in a stationary position, and used a multi-axis microscope stage to align a second cannon to it… which sounds incredibly easy, until you realize that.

DYE density was an experiment all on its own.If the density of the dye mix was light than water, the vortex would go up.If the dye was more dense than water the vortex would fall.

The thought is my efforts making videos will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for my kids college education. Until then if you appreciate what you’ve learned in this video and the effort that went in to it.
