Explain how the tube in Fig. 10-45, known as a siphon, can transfer liquid from one container to a lower one even though the liquid must flow uphill for part of its journey. (Note that the tube must be filled with liquid to start with.)
We have to explain the working of the siphon.
Step 1 of 3</p>
The siphon is an apparatus which can transfer liquid from one container placed at the higher level to another container placed at lower level due to pressure difference.
Step 2 of 3</p>
Figure below shows the diagrammatic representation of the working of siphon.
