Making Water Flow "Up Hill"


I assembled glassware and tubing to connect an upper water reservoir (funnel-shaped) to a lower, air-tight bottle, which had a flexible tube going from it to an air-tight bottle full of water. The falling water compressed the air in the empty lower bottle, forcing air up into the upper air-tight bottle of water. Water in the upper bottle was thereby forced up hill through a tube that carried the water to an elevation equal to the fall of the water from the water reservoir. Thus I made water "flow up hill," using only water from the same elevation as the water which "flowed up hill."
