How Things Work

Description

  • When you travelling in a jet plane, why do objects on the ground look as though they are still or moving slowly?



  • If I were to heat up a brownie and a white piece of cake, would the brownie heat up faster by radiation transfer because of its darker color?



  • Why does steam make ironing cotton pants so much easier?


The How Things Work website at the University of Virginia answers these and dozens of other questions on a wide array of science topics.
