|Wolf||CooooL, I can ask a shit load of questions? |
Why is the sky blue?
Why is water so wet?
Why do they put thows things at the end of shoe laces?
Why does shit stink so much?
Why did the dinosaurs get extinct?
Why do they call the "W" a "double U" when it looks like a double V?
Why is Laten considered a dead language?
Why is it that everything thats good to eat in this world always seems to be the colour brown?

|Yoni||I'm ashamed to say I knew the answers to most of those questions :-/. But here's a question nobody knows the answer to:|
Why is it that when you go to a restaurant and get a glass of cola with a straw, the straw keeps floating all the way up your cola so that its bottom edge is at the top, sometimes causing your straw to fall out?
|January 09, 2003, 02:04 pm|
|kNiGhT||im going to say b/c of the carbonation. air bubbles stick to the straw causing it to rise.||January 09, 2003, 03:15 pm|
|Eibro||I'm guessing because the straw weighs less than the water it displaces?||January 09, 2003, 04:28 pm|
|DarkVirus||Because when you go to a restaurant your soda is mixed from the syrup in a box/container, then mixed with water and then the co2 mixes in to get the bubbly feeling and also creates the soda to NOT be flat. The answer is there is so much oxygen in your soda in a restaurant that the straw floats to the top because the excessive ammounts of oxygen floats up along with the carbonation. Not to mention the weight of a straw is so insignificant that its easily pushed to the top by reacurring C02.||January 09, 2003, 04:54 pm|

This is like something I did in school one day...I went around asking people in the hallways, "What is the simplest way of describing a fire?". I ended up getting answers like:
-Something that emits heat
-Something that emits light
-Something that brakes down a fuling substance
-Something that causes an energy conversion
-Something that hurts when you try to touch it
It's funny how some people can't seems to simplify a defination for the simplest things on this planet that alot of us use in our day to day lives, because the answer was "Chemical Reaction"

|DarkVirus||Fire: Combustuble Material + Oxygen + Heat. |
No Fire: Lack of Oxygen.

|Grok||FLOATING STRAW --|
The adhesive forces of the carbonation bubbles to the straw are greater than the difference between the straw's weight and the total bouyancy of the bubbles. Thus the bubbles carry the straw along for the ride as they float to the top.
If the adhesive forces were less, the bubbles would just float up, leaving the straw to fall on the bottom.
Glad to be of service.

|Grok||Similar to the fire questions is ... "Why can't you burn water?"||January 10, 2003, 09:19 am|
You can do a simular experiment with raisins. Different to the straw, the raisins deliver the carbon dioxid bubbles at the surface and sink to the bottom again. After that the process repeats. I call it a raisin elevator.
