Science Experiments Ideas
Place a playing card on a wineglass so that at the side only a small gap remains. Lay a large coin half a dollar or 10 new pence on the card. The task is to get the coin into the glass. Anybody who does not know the trick will try to blow the coin into the gap from the side without success.
The experiment only works if you blow once quickly into the mouth of the glass. The air is trapped inside and compressed. The increased pressure lifts the card and the coin slides over it and into the glass.
