This is a question that came up on MXit. It raises some interesting questions but also opens up the possibilities for further discussions.
Question : do river flow in sunset or thy turn around nd flow wer the sun rise
My posted answer: I would like you to find a river nearby and do an experiment to see if this is true. When you find a river mark the spot and see which way it is flowing at sunrise, midday, sunset and if possible just before you go to sleep. Science is about finding out facts using reliable techniques so that other scientists can do the same experiment and come up with the same results. Please let me know what the answer is as I am very intrigued with this.
