So you see in action an impressive force of surface tension of water. However, the dissolved carbon dioxide does not play any significant role in this experiment. You can do this experiment with water «from the tap.» In fact, the purer the water, the greater the force of surface tension!
By the way, it is nice that the younger generation is interested in the experiments! As well as the “fair sex” 🙂
But somehow no one has shared the results… It would be interesting to try to do this experiment with the balls (but you should be very careful when you will put then down).
Has no one been interested in Bonus? Are the image of floating Soviet drawing-pins is so familiar to you? And also a coin… 😎
Do have such result? Well, I have to go to prepare the experiment #2.
The announcement of the experiment #2:
