When I set out to take this picture I was looking to illustrate trajectory and how both liquids would hit the ground at the same time. However during my hundreds of attempts to capture this phenomenon I accidentaly stumbled upon this picture and thought it was too beautiful to pass up. So my new topic is vector motion. This picture shows two vectors. The red stream is a verticle vector and the blue stream is a horizontal vector. When they make contact, the resulting purple stream is moving in a direction that is a combination of the two vectors which roughly bisects the 90 degree angle created by the two previously existing streams. This suggests that the force of the two streams are similar.
