Location: road from Kampala to Masaka. In this experiment it is attempted to demonstrate the different directions in which water should revolve in the funnel directly north and south of the Equator due to the Coriolis force. Even though the principle would be correct in theory, this is nothing but a tourist trap as the Coriolis force is by far too small in the vicinity of the Equator to be significant.
