I find that the theory of weak turbulence fits the data from the Faraday
experiment rather well. But the lack of an measurement of the energy
dissipation in the experiment, and the lack of an relation between the
energy dissipation and the prefactor in the weak turbulence scaling law for
prevents me from making an exact test of
the weak turbulence theory.
I show that is much closer to a power
law than either of the two quantities, which I can relate to existing
All three quantities I show in section 5.1
show some kind of transition at . This shows that the flow on
the surface is influenced by the wave patterns.
The soap film experiment should be tried again with smaller particles.
