Make A Square Bubble

Water molecules (and also liquid soap and glycerin molecules) tend to stick to themselves. This cohesive force creates surface tension. (Note: Water by itself doesn’t form long lasting bubbles because a thin layer of water molecules evaporates too fast. By adding soap and glycerin, the “skin” of the bubble is more stretchy and water is …

Does Water Conduct Electricity? Simple Experiment

“Don’t touch a switch with wet hands!” We were all taught that since we were little kids. It does seem like water can conduct electricity and that is why we shouldn’t touch any electrical outlet or switches if our hands are not dry. Does water really conduct electricity? Let’s find out by doing a simple controlled …

Sugar Water Rainbow | Density and Air Pressure Experiment

Density is the amount of substance (mass) within the volume occupied by the object. If two cups have the same amount of water (i.e. same volume), the one with more sugar is denser than the one with less sugar. Buoyancy is determined by relative density. The solution with less density floats above the solution with …

How Are Ocean Currents Formed | Water Convection Experiment

How Are Ocean Currents Formed Ocean currents are formed in several ways. They can be created by wind, by gravity, by events such as earthquakes. They can also be made by density differences in the water. Density in the water changes when temperature or salinity varies. In this experiment, we will investigate how temperature can affect …
