Flying Circus of Physics (Episode 1.7): Water Suction
Here’s a neat parlor room trick – firmly rooted in hardcore science, of course, courtesy of Cleveland State University Professor Jearl Walker. Fill a glass with water. Firmly hold any old piece of paper over the rim. Invert the glass . . . and prepare to have your mind blown. The water stays in the glass! How on earth is this possible, you ask? Tune in to the latest installment of “The Flying Circus of Physics” to find out. (Parlor room not included.)
