We recently talked about 10 simple chemistry experiments with everyday materials and, although those experiments were really interesting, physics is interesting as well, so today we are going to talk about 10 simple physics experiments with everyday materials.
Physics can be pretty intriguing, especially for the people that still don’t get its laws completely. To be fair, they are sometimes just too complicated to get completely, but that WOW effect that you get after the success is remarkable.
Keep in mind that, every time you start some experiment, whether it is a chemistry or physics experiment, the safety has to come first. Although all of these experiments that we are going to talk about today are supposed to be safe enough so that even a child can do them, the adult supervision is always advised.
Besides being fun, these experiments with materials that can be found in every household have some other purpose as well and that’s the learning. Children are more visual creatures and they will remember something a lot faster if they see it than if they read or hear about it. By showing them different experiments linked to some physical law or definition, you can be sure that their little heads will definitely keep that information inside for a long, long time and use it whenever they need to. It might even make them explore some more by themselves, but one thing is certain: they won’t forget it ever.
You can do these experiences even if you don’t understand physics at all. They are all well explained and very easy to be set and, the best part of all, completely safe. To find them, the research team assigned to it had to go through several different websites and, as the most reliable ones in this matter they found Informit, a YouTube video called 7 Cool Physics Tricks by Casey Ortman, and Little Shop of Physics. If you are interested, you can take a look at the results of their research by entering 10 simple physics experiments with everyday materials. If you try them, let us know how everything went. A video or two also won’t hurt.
