May the Forces Be with You - Measuring Forces that Hold Molecules Together
Presented by: Roberto Andresen Eguiluz
In these interactive sessions, we will talk about the forces that hold solids and liquids together, fabricate our own force measuring apparatus, and quantify the strength of glues. Finally, we will talk about how to present, compare, and discuss the strength of tested glues. The suggested list of materials will be sent before the session.
