The Amazon river is BIGGER than you think.


The average water pressure at average tap
is around 4-5 atm. To demonstate just how powerful that pressure is, try opening your
tap just a tiny bit and try to stop the water flow by only using your hand. Unless you’re
super strong, you wouldn’t be able to do that. The water flow rate from this tap is around
12l per minute. Let’s use this as our starting point. Compared to the amount of water we get from
out taps, Amazon river is HUGE. A billion times bigger. Of course, comparing Amazon river flow rate
to the flow rate of an average tap is just like comparing the height of the Eiffel Tower
to the height of an ant. But that’s okay because compared to the other
big rivers, Amazon river is huuuuge. Here it is compared to the Congo river, the
second biggest river in
the world. Here’s Mississippi river. That’s Danube. And the Nile.

  3. Saying that Egypt doesn't have the largest river in the world is just pure de-Nile…
