It looks as if a pink flamingo is almost mandatory in this In the Pink! challenge, so here’s mine.
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!
