What do you do with balloons that are left after a fabulous party, you pop them! I sympathise with either side of this argument. Balloon are good fun, but after their use is completed we need a way to dump them. Its a messy affair whether you chose to pop or deflate it, bit of a pain for the people who blew them all up and decorated the place as they have to then undo all of their hard work. But it is what it is.
From fog blasters, to floating planets, to incredible science chemical reactions, to cool science kits, there's something for everyone at IncredibleScience.
Our awesome selection of hands on science toys and easy science experiments make this a great stop for all your fun science needs. You'll find many cool science fair projects and educational science toys that will amaze and entertain you.
So thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions, ideas, cool science products that you think we should add, or if you just wanna chat, just give us a call or send us an. Home About. No Pop Balloon.
Can you stick a sharp object into a balloon without it bursting? It seems like an impossible task, but once you learn the science behind the secret, you'll see that it's very possible and easy to do. Objectives: To demonstrate the ability of cross-linked polymers to stay together and allow the balloon to be pierced without popping.
STEP 2: Use the pin to puncture the balloon at the center of the cross. Even though you will be able to feel air leaking the balloon will not pop.
STEP 3: Watch the hold through the tape. It will spread and eventually pop over time.
When you puncture the balloon, it is not air rushing out of the hole that causes it to pop. This means that it is the eventual spreading of the hole that causes the balloon to pop.
The hole spre, in effect ripping open the balloon. The tape slows down the process so that it can be seen more clearly.
Would this experiment work without the tape? Would this work if there was no tape but the pin was lubricated? Does it matter if the balloon is inflated more or less?
