Default Velocity of heated fluid in a tube



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
me?

Like a percolator type coffee pot.


You'll need the density of the fluid as a function of
temperature.
You'll need the kinematic viscosity of the fluid as a function of
temperature.
You'll need to know temperatures, and/or heat rates.
You'll need to know the inside diameter of the tube, and its
length.

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?

You can probably adapt something you will find using the
following Google search string:
