You can put spices in a scramble or fry an egg in bacon fat, so why poach eggs in just plain water? Water doesn't add any flavor whatsoever, so you're wasting a valuable opportunity to give your poached eggs more oomph—an extra important step if you're not frying your poached eggs afterward.
Opening a brand new carton of juice can be disastrous if you're not careful. The air pressure on the inside of the carton is waiting to exit, but does so in a vigorous force when opening a carton for the first time.
Want to make boring old colorless water brighten up on command? Well, you can control the color of water with this little magic trick. Actually, it's not really magic, but a classic science experiment known commonly as the iodine clock reaction, which uses the reactions between water and chemicals to instantly colorize water, seemingly by command. You can use different colorless chemicals to produce different colors, and you can even make the color vanish to make the water clear again.
Working with particle flow in 3DS MAX allows you to create all sorts of awesome effects, including swarms of small characters or, in this case, realistic liquids.

In this how-to video, you will learn how to stack liquids at home. This will make for a great experiment. You will need a tall, transparent container, molasses or honey, liquid soap, water, vegetable oil, and rubbing alcohol. You might want food coloring and items to float in the container. First, add the molasses to the container. Next, add the dish soap and water. You can add food coloring to this. Make sure to pour it on the side of the container. Add the vegetable oil on top of the water....
Ransack your kitchen and grab some dish soap, vegetable oil, honey, food coloring, rubbing alcohol, tall glass, water and a spoon. Why? Because you're going to create a visually stunning display of layered liquids. This illustrates the effects of different densities in liquids, while becoming a cool, psychedelic art piece for the living room. It's a super colorful decoration!
Here's a simple home science experiment to demonstrate to kids the different weight and viscosity of various liquids. The liquids near the bottom are more dense while the liquids on top are less dense. This can also be used to determine the relative density of solid objects. Place them in the container and see where they float.
They Way Things Go is a Rube Goldberg inspired art film by Peter Fischli and David Weiss (1987). The 30 minute film documents an assembly line of action and reaction.
Some Photoshop users are intimidated by the idea of trying to mask or select liquids. Here is a guide with some helpful tips on how to get this done. For more information, including detailed, step-by-step instructions, watch this brief video software tutorial.
"Freezing Moments" is a great piece of video of different liquids dramatically reaching freezing point, directed by Andrey Muratov. It's cryptically described as "Components of the space. Between existence and 'No!'. Alive - Absorbs." Hmm. Client is also cryptic: GTLK (Gosudarstvennaya Transportnaya Lizingovaya Kompaniya). Appears to be Russian, which would translate to the "State Transport Leasing Company".
Ever wonder why Jupiter has those colored bands across its surface? Jupiter's enormous mass is made from an array of different liquids, and those fluids do not play well together because of their different makeup. All of the hydrogen- and helium-based fluids are thought not to be miscible, which means that they aren't homogeneous in nature, resulting in strikingly beautiful bands across the planet's surface. But what about viscosity and how that correlates to the development of planets? What ...
Properly measure liquid and dry ingredients Diane Morgan describes the basic technique for measuring ingredients, which is critical to baking. There are two types of measuring cups, one for liquids and a different type for dry ingredients that need to be leveled off, such as flour or sugar.
If you've ever turned on an episode of Iron Chef or Top Chef, chances are you've seen a contestant in gloves and goggles, yielding a canister that looks far more fit for a chemistry lab than for a kitchen. Wonder what's in the canister? Liquid nitrogen, the go-to tool/ingredient of molecular gastronomy, and one of the trendiest items in many gourmet chefs' kitchens.

Lamb shanks are very easy to cook. Take 6 lamb shanks and put them in a bowl. Put some olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary, and thyme on them. Make sure you coat every shank with the seasoning as you turn the shank in the bowl several times. Put them in the oven for 30 minutes at 450 degrees. While the lamb shanks are cooking. Use a saucepan on medium to medium-high setting and heat 2 tablespoons of butter in it. Put some diced celery, carrots, and onions into the pan and saute them in the butt...

Every day we pass bridges, whether it's a foot bridge, a highway overpass, a span over water, or a viaduct over a valley. We pass on these structures without even thinking of the engineering genius that went into their design and construction, let alone the science behind their strength.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once observed that "the seed of science" was "wonder," and taking a look at this nine-layer liquid tower from Steve Spangler's Sick Science! channel, one can't help but do just that — wonder. How is this possible? Is this magic or what?
Microwave ovens are an essential part of modern life. It is important to know how to use them safely.
How were you supposed to know your computer can't swim? Isn't it called a laptop? You will need paper towels or lint-free cloth, cotton swabs, a towel, lots of luck, and professional help. Warning: liquids and electricity don't mix. Please make sure your hardware and all points of electrical contact are completely dry before plugging them in.

The pressure underwater is undeniably strong. If you were to fill a balloon with water and take it underwater, it would not burst but would stay the same size because liquids are not compressed. The pressure is the same, inside and outside of the balloon. If you were to fill that same balloon with air instead, the lower it dives into water, the more it shrinks, until it eventually can't take the pressure anymore and bursts.
Created by Houdini Product Specialist Stephen Tucker, this crash course series focuses on the concept of Smooth Particle Hydronamics and how they work within Houdini. The following videos on Particle Fluids continue working with fluid dynamics in Houdini 9.5 and assume that the viewer is relatively familiar with how dynamic simulations work, or have been following along through the series. The basics are still covered including creating water from an object but also include more conceptual si...
When cooking, it's always a good idea to wear an apron. They prevent any kind of spills from ruining your clothing and can be used as a shield to proetect you from hot liquids. So in this tutorial, you'll be finding ou thow to make an apron with a bohemian style look to it. Good luck and enjoy!
Learn how to measure cooking ingredients. Some home cooks approach cooking as an art form, a splash of this, a dash of that, and soon each culinary creation is deliciously unique. Bakers are more likely to appreciate the scientific side of cooking, relying on the careful measuring of ingredients to ensure consistent results every time they prepare a recipe. To measure cooking ingredients, you'll need a glass measuring cup for liquids, and a dry measure for powders.
