Level: Novice

Overview: Air has weight

Apparatus:

  • Yardstick
  • Two balloons
  • A hanger
  • Tape
  • String or thread

Steps:

  • You will need a yardstick, two balloons, a hanger, tape, and string or thread.
  • Suspend the yardstick from a hanger by attaching a string to the middle of it. Make sure to find the exact middle of the yardstick.
  • Tape or tie each balloon to the ends of the yardstick. Make sure your yardstick is balanced.
  • Remove one of the balloons and blow it up. Tie a knot to keep it closed. Replace it to the exact same spot on the yardstick.


Question to ask:

What do you hypothesize will happen ?

Is the yardstick still balanced? Why?
