Funnel Design Competition

Team was tasked with designing a funnel to be filled with 100 mL of water and drained from a height determined by the team. The water would pour into a beaker on a scale and the challenge was to have the scale read the same weight during the entirety of the funnel's pour. Our team determined our desired flowrate and focused on designing a funnel that would achieve this constant flowrate regardless of the hydrostatic pressure above the funnel's exit. The funnel was 3D printed from our Creo file in BU's EPIC workshop and finishing touches were applied before the competition. Our final result was nearly perfect and we took first place in the competition!
