F4-52: FORCE PUMP - MODEL

• ID Code: F4-52
• Purpose: Demonstrate the operation of a force pump.
• Description: As the plunger is pulled up, it causes water to fill the larger cylindrical chamber. As the plunger is pushed down, the water passes to a smaller chamber, from which it leaves by a nozzle to return to the reservoir. Pump gently, the support is plastic.
