Mathematicians Found Best Bubble Blowing Formula
Everyone who was once a child knows the incredible, simple joy that comes from blowing bubbles and watching an ultra-thin layer of liquid bob through the air before bursting apart. While it seems like magic when you’re a little kid, it turns out the mystery behind how bubbles work is not much more clear for adults. A team of mathematicians from New York University decided to take on the super daunting task of solving that mystery.
… There’s a lot of mumbo-jumbo from the study about oil bubbles, soap bubbles, film density… blah, blah, blah. Bottom line: the ideal speed for creating your bubble is about 8 miles per hour. Move your bubble wand at that speed for the best bubbles.
