Video of Control volumes and conservation of ping-pong balls

Here are the videos of the “Control volumes and conservation of ping-pong balls” demonstration. The full videos are linked from the GIF titles.

part one: a simple pipe with ping pong balls flowing from right to left.



Part two: a pipe with a junction in the middle with 1/3rd of the balls going in the middle bucket.


Part three: the same as part two but with ping pong balls flowing out of the down stream pond (the bucket on the far left).
