Today we took a field trip into the ladies bathroom at BU where we observed water drain from a sink and the direction the water drained. Of course the water drained clockwise since we are in the northern hemisphere.. but is that really why? Water drains clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and counter clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere? This video made by Ewan McGegor and Charlie Boorman I found in YouTube obviously shows this to be true but I needed more proof than just believing what the actor that played the wise Jedi Obiwan Kenobi says.
I took to my own observations to see what I could debunk or prove.
- Water experiment #1 at BU drained counter clockwise
- Water experiment #2 at home kitchen sink the water drained counter clock wise
- Water experiment #3 at home bathroom sink the water drained clockwise
- Water experiment #4 called a friend to drain his sink, water turned counter clock wise
