HOW TO MAKE A BOUNCING BUBBLING
What’s the science behind bubbles? Bubbles are made up of a thin wall of soapy film that fills with air. You can liken a bubble to a balloon in that a balloon has a thin skin of rubber filled with air. However, when two bubbles of similar size meet, they merge together creating the least possible surface area. Balloons, of course do not do this.
When bubbles of different sizes meet, one will become a bulge onto the larger bubble. You may start to notice that when you get a ton of bubbles going that they start to form hexagons. Bubbles will form 120 degree angles where they meet. If you would like to go deeper into bubble science, read more here..
