What is a water gun

How does a water gun work?

How does the archerfish shoot? His water pistol is his mouth. Like every pistol, it has a barrel, formed from the groove-shaped palate and the tongue pressed against it. The gill covers, which are suddenly contracted, generate the necessary pressure. With a sharp jet of water he shoots insects from overhanging branches. How is the pressure created on my water pistol? With the traditional model, you use the trigger to move a movable piston inside. This compresses the filled water. As a result, it sprays out of the nozzle at the front, but only briefly and not far. If you want more, you can use the soaker, in English: soaking wet. What's better with the soaker? The pressure is greater. It is built up by pumping. This allows ranges of several meters. In addition, the water tank is larger. That's why you can shoot longer. If there is still a large tank opening, you can add ice cubes. With ice water you are guaranteed to conquer the targeted inflatable boat. Do adults also use water pistols? For sure. For example the well-known comedian Beat Schlatter. When he writes texts on a park bench, he likes to be undisturbed. That's why he sprays the area on the park bench next to him with a water pistol.
