Kubic Bubbles Demo Picture

  • Build cubes, octahedrons, tetrahedrons and triangular prisms – then
    dip them in soapy glycerin mixture to produce surfaces of minimum energy.
  • Study surface tension and demonstrate light refraction.
  • Soap film surface contained by three dimensional framework will
    automatically arrange itself to have the smallest possible surface
    area. Soap films can be used to give visual answers to complex mathematical problems.
  • Located in L02, section D1. Soap solution located in L01,
    section B5.
