Aliza also worked on “Hot Water Fountain” problem. It involved creating a hot water fountain using a partially filled Mohr pipette. The hot water raised the temperature of the air column inside the pipette resulting in an increased pressure. As the pipette was turned with its tip upwards, a stream of hot water fountain was observed exiting the tip. Through this performance parameters such as describing the height of the fountain and its dependence on the temperature of water and the volume of air column and optimization to get the maximum height was performed.
