    Lightbulb unchanged from!

    Hi,

    What does unchanged from mean? For example in the phrase blow:

    It appeared to remain unchanged from that in a straight pipe.


    Thanks

    It means it hasn't changed. If it's water we are talking about, the water now is the same as the water in the straight pipe.

    Re: unchanged from!

    It's not a very good sentence- what's the wider context?
