KENTUCKY (07/09/2018 - 07/15/2018) Hooked on Science - Disappearing Glass

INGREDIENTS

• Vegetable Oil
• Large Pyrex Bowl
• Small Pyrex Bowl

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1: Fill the large Pyrex bowl half of the way with vegetable oil.
STEP 2: Completely submerge the small Pyrex bowl into the vegetable oil and observe. What happens when light passes through the air, Pyrex bowl, and vegetable oil?

EXPLANATION

The small Pyrex bowl disappears in the vegetable oil
because Pyrex and vegetable oil have the same refractive index.

SCIENCE SAFETY

PLEASE follow these safety precautions when doing any science experiment.

• ALWAYS have an adult present.
• ALWAYS wear the correct safety gear while doing
any experiment.
• NEVER eat or drink anything when performing any
experiment.
• REMEMBER experiments may require marbles, small balls, balloons, and other small parts. Those objects could become a CHOKING HAZARD. Adults are to perform those experiments using these objects. Any child can choke or suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons. Keep uninflated or broken balloons away from children.

Thanks,
