I cannot stand videos dubbed with synthesized voices.

It generally explains the concept simply. Search the term if you want to find something you prefer. I don't care.

And that's why you don't want to work as an underwater welder with giant pipes.

Millennials were never taught siphon hose technology in school. Sitting slack jawed, "wow, I find that strangely satisfying"

It's like when you have a cable on the desk and an end goes over. It pulls the rest down.

[–] BB-3 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

You can save on electricity that way. If the cable is directing the power to flow downhill, then gravity will help pull the electrons and improve the efficiency of the whole system.

[–] prairie 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago  (edited ago)

But current is actually electron hole flow, so it actually works better to angle the cable uphill so the holes can float upward. Unless the device has a back hole, of course, then downhill is better.
