the height determines the pressure:
P=pgh
P:pressure (Pa)
p:density of the liquid (kg/m^3)
g:force/acceleration of gravity (N/kg or m/s/s)
h:height of the column (m)
more info (and practical use as a pressure guage) can be found HERE

They're pinky and the brain/yes pinky and the brain/one is a genius/the other's insane! My thinking is that the lead ball is either gonna hold not enough or too much pressure, also the 4mm tube holding the ball could wear down, reducing the lifetime of the cart greatly Gunfreak, he'll force it in, p...

why do you think your spark is weak? If your not getting reliable ignition, the first place to look is how much fuel your'e putting in Admittedly, small scale combustions seem to be a dead end, not enough pressure to for smaller barrels can be generated by most fuels at atmospheric pressure I've had...

If you have access to a tap set, experiment a little, schraeder valves from bike tubes take well to a 1/4-28 NF thread in my experience: http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx359/Linuxexorcist/DSC_9152.jpg Soldering it should be fine, just make sure the hole is a tight fit, and remove your valve core...

alright let me rephrase that: less than $50 for a medium bore hybrid? I think that's awesome. Although, i think what really brings up the price of a hybrid is the metering system. And being "resourceful" and pinching things from the lab is reasonable, there's a house under construction across the st...

I want to install a 1/4 inch NPT shrader, instead of binary adhesives. Really JSR? nothing to say on that? less than $50 for a hybrid? I think that's awesome, might look into it I probably would use copper pipe for the barrel, as this handy guide shows, it can take hybrid pressures. How do you inte...
