Ice Bomb

A cast iron bomb is completely filled with ice water, then placed into a dry-ice/acetone slush and covered with a wooden box. When the water in the bomb freezes, the cast iron bomb explodes, breaking into several pieces, and destroying the box in which it was placed.

Viscosity of Liquids - Capillary Length Test

Four funnels are connected to differing lengths of capillary tubing. The greater the length of the capillary tube, the longer it takes for the water to flow through the apparatus.
