Have you ever stabbed a water-filled plastic bag? Is it leaking? Is it dripping? If a plastic filled with water is pierced, believe it or not, it does not leak. This isn’t a magic trick. This simple experiment is straightforward to carry out with readily available materials. Come on, try to figure out how to keep the water-filled stick from leaking.
Materials and Tools for Simple Experimentation Not Leaking Despite Being Stabbed
- Pointed pencil
- Plastic ice cubes or ice lolly
Steps in a Simple Experiment Stabbed but Not Leaked
First, prepare the tools. A pointed, plastic pencil used to make ice cubes or ice lolly.
Second, fill the plastic with water until it’s ¾ full, then tie the ends so they don’t spill. If you’re having trouble, seek assistance from your parents or brother/sister.
Third, it’s time to put your best foot forward. Insert the pointed pencil into the water-filled plastic and push it through to the other side. Isn’t it true that it’s not leaking?
Fourth, let the pencil stick in the plastic. if you want to stab again make sure not to get too close. The new plastic will leak after the pencil is taken
Explanation Why the Plastic Filled with Water is Not Leaked
Ice cube plastic, also known as ice lolly plastic, is a form of PP (polypropylene) plastic manufactured from long chemical chains of polymers. Because this plastic is more elastic, it will stretch when pulled. Because of the elastic nature of the plastic, when the sharp end of the pencil is inserted into it, the plastic will attach to the pencil. The area around the surface of the pencil that penetrates the plastic will be sealed by adhering the plastic to the pencil, preventing water from escaping from the plastic bag.
So, how do you go about doing that? Is the experience enjoyable? Do you want to try something else?
