I am an EE in need of help with a topic I do not even know where to start
looking for answers; given a vertically oriented hollow tube filled with
fluid of known qantity and property and heat applied to the bottom of the
tube - the heated fluid will travel towards the top of the tube with a
certain speed. In its most basic form, how do I compute the speed of the
body fluid that rizes upwards? Any pointers to math/physics to study for

Like a percolator type coffee pot.
You'll need the density of the fluid as a function of
You'll need the kinematic viscosity of the fluid as a function of
You'll need to know temperatures, and/or heat rates.
You'll need to know the inside diameter of the tube, and its
What you will get is empirical relations equating your fluid in
your "experiment" to similar fluid situations.

Thanks David. I'll post in the other news group as well. Any books/web sites
you can recommend?
