Steve Spangler Science: Water Twist

Experience cohesion, hydrogen bonds, and the polarity of water molecules first hand with this hands-on science experiment

When you poke five, evenly-spaced wholes into the side of a bottle, they come out as five separate streams. That is, until you run your finger through the streams. Like magic, the five streams combine to form one! The principle at work is a force called cohesion, and the Water Twist is a great hands-on way to experience cohesion, polarity, and the properties of water.
