PAPER CLIP FLOATING ON WATER
Demonstrates Surface Tension
The paper clip depresses the water surface and is balanced by the surface tension forces on either side which are parallel to the water's surface at the points where it contacts the paper clip. A pattern is projected onto the surface of the water.
