A pop-eyed visual guide to liquid flow rates

Easily estimate the flow rates of liquids! Rob shows you how.

Only marginally concerned with the actual utility of such a project, I recently embarked upon a quest to record and illustrate the rate of water flows. Would you like to measure the rate of a dripping faucet, but lack the sophisticated equipment required? Do not despair! Armed with a gallon jug and a stopwatch, I have prepared an easy-to-use water-flow estimation guide.
