Daniel Bernoulli was a Swiss mathematician and physicist in the mid-1700s. He excelled in the fields of statistics and probability, but also was influential in applying mathematics to physical mechanics. Particularly, he is known for his work in fluid dynamics, now known as Bernoulli’s Principle. Most simply, Bernoulli’s Principle is a derivation of the conservation
While Pluto is no longer a full-sized planet, it still has many properties that we care to learn about. It’s still the largest object in the Kuiper Belt, and by volume it’s the largest of the dwarf planets in our solar system. And its unprecedented popularity has cemented itself into the hearts of the public,
CAUTION: This experiment uses a hot plate. Please use adult supervision if attempting to recreate. Bubbles are a great resource for fun and physics. They provide interesting insight for optimization and can even be used as models for atmospheres. Scientists are able to use bubbles as models for the atmosphere because they are very thin
CAUTION: Antifreeze is a very powerful chemical that, if ingested, can cause serious illness or death. Do not attempt to use it without adult supervision. All appropriate safety precautions have been taken for the filming of this video. If you are from a colder part of the world, then you know how important antifreeze is.
Water is usually pretty predictable. At standard pressures it will boil at 100˚C and freeze at 0˚C. However, under special circumstances it might surprise you. Dihydrogen monoxide can become supercooled, dropping below 0˚C while maintaining the liquid phase of matter. Here’s how: Acquire distilled or purified water. Fill an empty bottle with tap water (this
