Amaze your friends! Impress your significant other! Confuse little kids! This Wooden Floating Ping Pong Ball Gadget looks like magic but really demonstrates a very simple scientific principle!
This super cool Floating Ping Pong Ball gadget demonstrates the Bernoulli’s Principle, the same amazing principle that allows heavier-than-air objects, like airplanes, to fly! Bernoulli, an 18th century Swiss mathematician, discovered that the faster air flows over the surface of something, the less the air pushes on that surface. That means that the air pressure surrounding the object is lower than normal.
With this Wooden Floating Ping Pong Ball Gadget, the The air blown through the wooden pipe, produces fast moving air that blows around the sides of the ball. The moving air at the surface of the ping pong ball is at a lower pressure than the surrounding, stationary air. The ball wobble s in an attempt to exit the area of low pressure, but the higher air pressure surrounding it forces it back into the low pressure area. Viola, we get the Bernoulli Effect and the ball floats!
- Includes pipe and 2 ping pong balls
- Solid wooden construction make this a toy for the ages!
