Calling all Physics boffins
During the last week or two, a buddy and I have been using a rather nice set of Carb balancing gauges which we had on loan (not on my LT). While working on the bike we got into a discussion about home made "Heath Robinson" devices for doing the same job as the £70.00 gauges. We both agreed that a set of tubes filled with water would work very well, but got into discussion about optimum tube size to maximise the accuracy of the level change.
Given that the same Vacuum is applied to point A on the tubes, which water level will change the most? 5mm tube, 10mm tube, or will they both move the same. -see picture-
