Put a bar of ivory soap in the microwave and allow it to stay inside on high heat for 2 minutes. When you will open the door you will be surprised because it doesn’t even look like the bar of soap you putted inside. It is like some kind of magic trick.
This is because the air molecules inside the bar have expanded which resulted with a transformation. This is also known as the Charles’ Law.
Jacques Charles was a French scientist, mathematician, and inventor and his most notable work came in the late 18th century. He was the first man to reveal that hydrogen could be used as a lifting factor in the balloons. He was the first man ever to upraise in the sky with a hydrogen-filled balloon. There isn’t any data that could tell us for how long and how high he was in the air. This is very important achieving, but this French scientists is mostly famous for his work that later has been named as Charles’ Law.
This law is also known as the law of volumes, and states that a gas is prone to expand when it is exposed on extra heat. This law was presented in 1802 by the French chemist Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac, who acknowledged Charles for all his work on this subject. The ivory soap is loaded with air molecules, and this is the reason why it starts to expand when exposed on some heat. It is amazing sight, when the bar of soap will curve and curl until it takes up the entire free space. You can still use your soap, but it will be a little bit fragile and creamy.
The following video will present you several other scientific experiments that are fun to do in your home-particularly if your children are interested in science. One of the most fun and interesting experiments is the one that shows the transfer of water through a plant. You will need white flower and some food coloring. Put the flower in a cup of water and add the food coloring. Be patient and you will notice that the flower’s leaves will absorb the color. This experiment is amazing for the kids, not only for watching, but for learning how the water is absorbed by the plants.
Watch the following video and learn how to implement these experiments by yourself.
