Soap Bubbles 2ND Edition

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An excellent primer and the classic work on the topic of soap bubbles and films, this book employs simple experiments to establish a practical basis for the existence and function of surface tension and energy minimization. Dozens of experiments require nothing more than soap, straws, and bits of rubber, yet they impart profound and fundamental concepts relating to the science of fluids.

Geared toward readers without much background in the subject, the book begins without difficult calculations and concludes with only the simplest equations. Lucid and concise experiments allow observers to formulate their own practical understanding of soap bubbles and provide a foundation for more serious studies. More than 80 illustrations complement the text.

Synopsis:

Consists of dozens of experiments, explanations of the principles they demonstrate, and detailed discussions of the color and thickness of soap bubbles. 83 illustrations. 1911 edition.

About the Author

Sir Charles Vernon Boys (1855-1944), a British physicist known for his innovative experiments, served as a Professor at the Imperial College of London from 1889-97. He was the first to write about soap bubbles from a scientific point of view, and he remains a folk hero to recreational math and science enthusiasts.
