In the Cohesion Plates Demonstration Kit for physical science and physics, mesmerize others by “fusing” two plastic plates together with only a drop of water. The kit illustrates the power of atmospheric pressure and more.
Mesmerize your students by “fusing” two plastic plates together with only a drop of water! This easy demonstration illustrates the cohesive properties of water and shows that atmospheric pressure is a powerful, unusual force. Smooth plastic plates will not break. Beveled edges allow for easy gripping. Includes a reproducible student worksheet and complete instructions.
Concepts: Atmospheric pressure, cohesive forces. Time Required: 15 minutes
Materials Included in Kit: Acrylic cohesion plate, beveled, 4" x 4" x 3/16", 2
