The Sandlot: Retrieval Suction
00:00:00 - 00:01:57

The boys use the suction of three vacuum cleaners to retrieve a ball that is out of their reach. Their attempt fails when the "Beast" chomps down on a pipe, which blocks off almost all air flow to the suction.

Public Discussion Questions

  1. Is the suction three times stronger as a result of having three suction pipes?
  2. Does any energy get lost as it travels through the pipe?
