creating water clock
Posted: Tue Feb 26, 2013 7:21 am
I am creating a water clock for a class project. I have a flower pot filled with water that drips water into a glass vase under it. The glass vase contains a wooden dowel and cork attachment. The goal is for the dowel and cork to float in the water as the vase fills with water. This is not happening. I have changed the wooden dowel to straws. I assumed that that wood was too heavy, but I am still experiencing the same problem. The cork is not floating in the water, therefore I can't measure the level of water. I am sure I could just simply measure with a ruler, but it would take away from the project. I am trying to avoid cutting the cork. Not sure if that is the issue. Any suggestions on what I could use instead of a cork?
