Why doesn't alcohol freeze. My uncle bought some vodka a few weeks back, and he put it in the freezer. It didn't freeze? He said because it was PURE alcohol. But..everything freezes, if i get some water, and put it in the freezer, it will freeze, so will coca-cola, or ribena.
Okay, I have a few questions. My first being:Could I smash a glass by squealing? Ive seen on the T.V that a singer went on and screamed at the top of her voice, The glass broke. I don't believe everything i see on T.V, but i knew you guys would know.
Ive heard about this thing. The 'brown noise' I asked my teacher about it and he said, Your muscles will contract and relax when a certain frequency sound is made. So, does that mean a sound on the T.V or the radio or on a phone, could relax my muscles, or maybe even stop one? e.g the heart.
Howcome birds don't get fried? I was walking home a few nights back, and i seen alot of birds on the electricity Pylon wires. I was wondering how they done that? Cause if i did that, i would die. I know that they aren't affected because the current goes right through them, and back out through another exit, But howcome that law doesn't apply to me? Or does it?
What is Absence? Ive seen it in my science lab, the teacher said it was 90% alcohol!? Is it illegal, and what are its effects?
If i jumped in a falling lift at the last minute, would it save me? Ive been told that the force of the falling lift would drag me down, and i wouldnt be able to jump or move.
Last one. Why if i jump in a moving plane, why dont i fly backwards? Casue in theory, im in the sky. I was told it was something to do with the momentum? Whatever that means
If i smashed a planes window, very high up, would it DRAG me out? Ive seen it on movies before, where someones shot a guy and the window smashed and then all the luggage gets sucked out and everyone holds onto the chairs. Is this true? Or just hollywoodness
Breaking glass sound?An opera singer hits a high note and this shatters a glass in the drawing room. This may have appeared in the movies, but is it really possible to shatter glass with sound? Below are some results from an experiment carried out at the University of Salford that shows it is possible to shatter glass using sound, but it is very difficult....So can an opera singer do it?If amplified, yes it is possible. Unamplified it is very difficult, although it was done on Myth Busters. However, you need to get the glass very close to your mouth, and having spent time picking glass out of a loudspeaker, I wouldn't risk doing it myself. I can, however, break the glass with a clarinet.
