    • Abstract

       

      In this series of articles, the authors discuss various phenomenain fluid dynamics, which may be investigated via tabletopexperiments using low-cost or home-made instruments.The second article in this series is about a simple set-up fordemonstrating the instability of Kolmogorov Flow.
