Siphon will fail to work if

 [A]. the densities of the liquid in the two vessels are equal [B]. the level of the liquid in the two vessels are at the same height [C]. both its limbs are of unequal length [D]. the temperature of the liquids in the two vessels are the same

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Sundar said: (Tue, Mar 22, 2011 06:14:30 AM) Siphon: Draw off or convey (liquid) by means of a siphon

 Yogesh said: (Thu, Mar 31, 2011 05:37:44 AM) Actually I also get confused, What is Siphon.

 Mohit Shah said: (Wed, May 25, 2011 10:49:33 AM) A siphon is a tube which can be used to move water from a reservoir to another point.

 Sandeep said: (Tue, May 31, 2011 06:40:50 AM) A siphon is a tube which is used to move water from a reservoir to another vessels point.

 Swathi said: (Wed, Jun 8, 2011 02:02:39 AM) A tube shaped like an inverted V OR U with unequal legs .It is used to convey liquid from a container to a lower level by atmospheric pressure.

 Vasu said: (Sat, Oct 22, 2011 08:05:38 AM) Due to gravitational force every object attract to downwards. When they are equal at vessels no applying gravitational force, so there is no flow from top to bottom.

 Manasi said: (Thu, May 17, 2012 01:48:31 PM) What is Siphon?

 Atalay said: (Thu, May 31, 2012 05:01:04 PM) Give brief explanation about siphon and its theory?

 Nirosha S said: (Fri, Aug 17, 2012 06:49:37 PM) What is mean by siphon?

 Vinay Kumar said: (Fri, Nov 16, 2012 03:25:41 PM) If two limb of siphon have equal height of water then the atmospheric pressure equal on both limb of siphon hence water will be not flows from one side to another.
