Week 8 Prototype Update

This week we began to take a more serious look at the math behind our device. Specifically, we are trying to discover (1) if the chlorine dosing is in fact linearly related to the flow rate of the water through the pipe, (2) which height differences matter in dosing, and (3) how much head changes dosing. We began tackling these question with Bernoulli’s equation. We will have a working excel model to test different parameters by next week. Hopefully with a better understanding of the physics of our situation, we will be able to make more informed design decisions.
