Annihilation and Reanimation of a Tornado in the Improved Tornado Tube
Bednarek, Stanislaw
Physics Teacher, v54 n2 p103-105 Feb 2016
Some new experiments using an improved version of the "tornado tube" are described here. The improved tornado tube consists of two plastic transparent bottles whose openings are connected with a ball valve, available at most hardware stores. After being filled with fluid and inverting, this tube allows demonstration of the generation, annihilation, and reanimation of vortices, or tornados.
