Daddy Day Science #2: Heated Air Expands

ESP32 Development Board WiFi+Bluetooth Ultra-Low Power Consumption Dual Cores ESP-32 ESP-32S Board
Integrated antenna and RF balun, power amplifier, low-noise amplifiers, filters, and power management module. The entire solution takes up the least amount of printed circuit board area. This board is used with 2.4 GHz dual-mode Wi-Fi and Bluetooth chips by TSMC 40nm low power technology, power and RF properties best, which is safe, reliable, and scalable to a variety of applications.

Thursday – Daddy Day – Science Day! In the second experiment I wanted to show my daughter that air expands when it gets warmer. My favourite “science” book offered a good 5 minute experiment. Take a bottle, put a balloon over the top, put the bottle into a pot with cold water and warm up the water on the stove. Honestly I didn’t expect such a quick and clear reaction! And my daughter loved it!

Heated Air Expands

The experiment setup: pot with cold water, empty glass bottle and a balloon
Adding the balloon to the bottle
Heating the water on the stove
Hurray! The hypothesis has been confirmed! The air that gets heated by the warming water expands and inflates the balloon

 

Cooled Air Contracts

Now testing the reverse effect. Does the balloon deflate when the air gets cooled by cold water from the tap?
Indeed it does!

The video below shows a time lapse of the first phase:
