45 minutes in length
Everything is made of atoms, and every atom is jiggling to and fro. In fact, temperature is just a measure of how fast atoms are moving, and pressure is simply a measure of how many atoms are bumping into us as they jiggle this way and that.
Dry ice (-109 °F) and liquid nitrogen (-320 °F) will be used in dazzling experiments to reveal the relationship between hyperactive atoms and temperature, while a vacuum pump & vacuum chamber will reveal the incredible power with which atoms bump into us at every turn.
*If a monitor or screen is provided with a VGA port, an infrared camera will also be used to reveal the invisible “light” (i.e. electromagnetic radiation) emitted by the shaking atoms in our bodies.
*All of the demos and experiments in this presentation will be tied together by the thread of jiggling atoms.
