I am a high school physics teacher. My physics club students want to
build a ruben's tube. I would like to use this in my classes. I want to
build a version that will go on my teacher demo desk which is only 8
feet long. This is in a traditional classroom that has 10' high
ceilings. The demo desk is 3' from the nearest wall. Since there is
house gas on the demo desk, I planned on using that for the gas source.
From the videos that I saw on line it seems like I should be able to
control things fairly well. If I take reasonable precautions, does
anyone see any issues about trying to make this work under those
constraints?
