It’s 17 years since I last studied Physics, and while I was always a pretty competent scientist, it never really held my interest. Maybe I should’ve paid more attention to my teachers…and to Archimedes. This afternoon I found myself on the sofa with a full mug of soup, a large hunk of bread, and a desire to dip the latter deep into the former. Result? Soup everywhere.
Anyway, after cleaning myself off, I decided that there might be other people out there who could do with a bit of a crash course in basic Physics. With that in mind, I proudly present…
(Sinful) Sunday Science Experiments (Not For Kids): Displacement
Take a glass and fill it with water.
Find an object – ideally something large that you’re happy to get wet. Slowly insert it into the water, until it’s fully immersed.
Observe the mess you’ve made. Try to remember what’s supposed to happen next.
Clear up mess. Resolve not to give up the day job…
Oh, and apparently this process also works well for post-sex clean-up.
(This week’s Sinful Sunday theme is ‘Black & White’, and let’s face it, all terrible textbooks should come complete with grainy, colour-drained images. I’ve included the originals alongside, per Molly’s request)
