My 5 year old and I watch whirlpools in his bath (often). I assume the shadow
forms because the water is moving faster where it forms the eddy. Why is there
no whirlpool when we have lots of bubbles? Why does the width of the whirlpool
vary so much, even in approximately the same depth water? Is the whirl faster
the farther away you are from the Equator? Thanks!
