The ‘Vortex’ introduces you to the formation of a whirlpool in an interactive way. When you turn the handle, you set the water in motion, causing a whirlpool to form due to centrifugal forces. This demonstrates how liquids move and react to forces. You can observe this, for example, when draining a bathtub.

The principle behind the formation of whirlpools is important in water treatment and purification, where whirlpools help separate particles from water. They also play a role in mixing ingredients in the food industry and the chemical industry, ensuring thorough mixing.

Scientists conduct extensive research on the forces within a whirlpool. With a better understanding of whirlpools, you can, for example, improve the mixing of liquids and gases. Understanding these principles can also lead to better weather predictions.
