Water Bow Science Experiment :
Such science experiments have been designed for the purpose of making a child understand the basic of science in an interesting manner. There are several science experiments for the kids to choose from, but one of the most popular and amusing science experiments is the Water Bow science experiment.
To perform this Water Bow science experiment all you need is a plastic spoon, woolen cloth and a tap with running water. First of all take a plastic spoon and rub it with a woolen cloth for a while. Then gently turn on the water tap to the point where you will see a thin flow of water coming from the tap.
Now take the spoon and hold it close to the fine jet of water. Soon you will be amazed to see that this fine jet of water gets pulled to the spoon and forms a shape like a bow.
This happens because when the plastic spoon is rubbed with the woolen cloth it becomes electrically charged and when it is brought closer to the flow of water, the uncharged water particles get attracted towards the spoon since water is the good conductor of electricity and draws the electric charge from the plastic spoon close to it. But remember not to let the water touch the spoon.
You might have observed that the Water Bow science experiment is pretty simple to conduct and is quite amazing in nature. Children can try this experiment at their home and show it to their friends or family members.
