We will conduct an experiment!
We will need:
- three identical glasses;
- A sheet of ordinary office paper, such as A4 format and a density of 80 g / m2.
The course of the experiment:
1. Place two glasses at a distance equal to their diameter and place a sheet of paper on them.
2. Place the third glass in the middle of the paper. Naturally, the paper will sag and the glass will fall through.
3. Now repeat the experiment, but first fold the sheet of the accordion. We bent the sheet in half three times and got a harmonica of seven links.
What happened? The paper withstood the weight of the glass!
What for? The sheet of paper itself is easily bent. And when you fold the harmonica, there are ribs that are very difficult to bend.
How much does a paper page weigh? 5 grams!
How much does a glass weigh? 186 grams!
And a little romance!
Those who watched the film "War of the Worlds Z", certainly remembered the image of the main character, whose role is played by Brad Pete. And, perhaps, you remember the moment, as the main character was protected from zombies.
By making use of improvised means - magazines and scotch tape, the hero manages to create armor capable of protecting against a bite.
