Invisible Glass Trick

Experiments | 9-14 yrs | Video

REQUIREMENTS

  • Container (pyrex)
  • Beaker (pyrex)
  • Vegetable oil

WHAT TO DO

Pour vegetable oil into the larger container and then immerse the smaller container in the larger container.

WHAT HAPPENS

The beaker looks like a ghost like object in the container, almost invisible.

WHY THIS HAPPENS

The real secret behind this science experiment is the index of refraction. When light travels through the glass, and then through the oil, the speed of light slows down and then it hits the glass and refracts or reflects and this is why the glass looks invisible.

TRY THIS

Do this experiment with glasses of different shapes and sizes to see what kind of an effect it has on them. You will find that not all glasses have the ability to vanish.
