Abstract

The prototype WireWall measurement system was designed using bucket and balloon tests at the National Oceanography Centre's dockside, Southampton, during April to August 2018. Initially the electronics were configured using a frame of 6 vertical wires through which buckets of water were thrown. Once satisfied the system was recording at an appropriate rate for the wire spacing a single electronics unit was set up with 6 wires positioned horizontally to measure the fall velocity of water under gravity when a balloon full of water was burst at a known height above the top wire. The wires were spaced 10 cm apart. For each balloon test the velocity was calculated between different wire pairs for comparison against Newton's theory.
