Balloon Vs. Pin Experiment
Wow your friends with this mind boggling experiment which showcases surface tension. In this experiment, inquisitive scientists will enact two similar scenarios which will yield very different results. In the first trial, the single pin puts a great deal of pressure on one spot of the balloon causing it to burst. In the second experiment, the surface tension is greater and is more spread out which allows the balloon to stay intact even with added pushing onto the pointy surface.
