THE DECAPITATED HEAD IN A GLASS

Upside down

What you need to prepare

  • Clear jar with a tight-fitting lid,
  • mirror.

The experiment

Pour in a jar of water over and shut the lid to the inside did not get air bubbles. Put the jar to the mirror cover upward. Hasten face and look inside. There you will see the familiar reduced head, but more than in the glass. Now begin to tilt the jar to the side, keeping his eyes on the mirror.

What happened?

The head of the Bank itself will be too lean until you are upside down, while the legs and will not be visible. Pick up the jar again and head over.
