Tornado in a bottle: in this experiment we fill the bottle 3/4th with water and add any dishwasher to it. We add some glitter we then rotate the bottle. When we rotate a mini tornado gets formed as water vortex gets created and when centripetal force acts on it a mini tornado gets formed. 2. To stab potato using a straw: we take a straw and try to pierce it in the potato it does not stab the potato how much ever force we apply. We then close its lid with one finger and then try to pierce it in the potato. This time its goes in because high pressure get created in the straw which increases our ability to pierce the potato. 3. To build a fizz inflator: we take vinegar in a bottle and add baking soda to it. Place a balloon on the mouth of the bottle, the balloon blows as carbon dioxide gas is released. 4. Candle under water: we fill a saucer with water. Place a candle in between and light it, cover it with a glass. After few seconds we will see that the water level in glass rises up, this happens so as to create equal pressure in and outside the glass. 5. Oil water magic: in this we take water in a beaker and add oil, it floats, then we add detergent to it and we will see that oil dissolves in water this happens due to a process called micelle formation.
