It’s been a long
lime time since the last post, but here it is! So get your gin and tonic ready; the limes have arrived.
Have you ever wondered if limes float in water?
Probably not, but they do! (As long as they have a life jacket..)
Let’s demonstrate the beauty of buoyancy using two normal limes and two normal jars of water:
These limes just float to the surface and just kind of bob around, so let’s skip ahead to where this gets interesting—
Same scenario: two limes, two jars of water; HOWEVER one lime is peeled, taking away it’s protective exterior.
The lime peel traps air in tiny pockets, which creates the buoyancy that pushes the lime upwards. Without that trapped air, the lime has no way to stay afloat. So always wear your
lime life jacket!
Special thanks to my friends for the gift of inspiration
