Problem 15.7: Identify the correct animation for liquid flowing through pipes

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

Which of the animations, if any, depicts a possible physical situation for ideal fluid flow? Explain what is wrong with the animations that are not physically possible. Assume an ideal fluid in each case (position is given in tenths of meters). The vertical tubes are open to the atmosphere. Assume all tubes are cylindrical. Restart.
