Performing amazing magic tricks takes years to perfect especially if you are going to do it in front of the crowd. Little did we know that science has already give us a helping hand!
In this video, science proves that magic tricks are just found in our everyday items!
The First trick shown is about using magnet to move the silver balls and topple down the matchbox. It’s pretty intense if you ask me.
The Explanation: We are not science expert but we think that the balls move due to the polarity of the magnets. It could be that one of the balls had to “repel” and move to where it was “attracted” to.
Second trick is the egg placed inside the vinegar and becomes “rubbery” after a day? Hmm.. I wonder if the egg is still edible.
The Explanation: Acid (Vinegar) and Calcium Carbonate (Egg Shell) in one container creates a chemical reaction. The Acid dissolves the egg shell in which when you touch and play around with the egg is kind of flexible or rubbery.
Third trick is gas reaction between vinegar and baking soda and how it affects fire.. or puts off fire.
The Explanation: Gas emitted from the chemical reaction between vinegar and baking soda produces carbon dioxide. We all know that fire cannot combust in carbon dioxide. That’s why carbon dioxide is sometimes used to put out fire.
And lastly, copper wires twirling around the battery.
The Explanation: The battery with the help of the magnet created a magnetic field in which it gives off powers to turn the copper wire.
Who knew Science has some kick ass tricks up its sleeve?
