Pink flamingo swizzle stick refraction
One well known effect of the refraction of light as it passes from air to water is that a stick partially submerged in water will appear to bend where it enters the water. Water is boring, and I don’t have any sticks, but in the interests of science I experimented to discover how much a pink flamingo swizzle stick will appear to bend when partially submerged in sparkling wine compared to in a martini. The results are quite different, which makes me wonder if the shape of the glass has anything to do with the effect?
Oh, the things I do in the name of science!
