Bubbles and Hurricanes

Featured Video Play Icon

You may think of soap bubbles as a childhood plaything, but there’s a lot to be learned from them. In her newest video, Dianna of Physics Girl explores some of the fascinating research scientists use soap bubbles for and how you can recreate some of their experiments at home. Scientists have used bubbles to explore how atmospheric vortices behave, how to tie knots in fluids, how grass waves in the wind, and even how explosive detonations occur. Just modeling bubbles and foams can be incredibly complex. It turns out the humble bubble has quite a lot to teach us. (Video credit: Physics Girl/PBS Digital Studios)
