Amazing video: Pouring a spoonful of olive oil in the lake… gets rid of the waves Written by Wednesday, 21 December 2016
In this experiment olive oil quickly spreads on the water surface, creating a protective layer that vanishes the waves in this small lake

If you like to make your boating trips and you are annoyed by waves, it might be a good idea to carry a bottle of olive oil.

In a new video, a Harvard lecturer conducts a very simple but very striking experiment demonstrating that a single tablespoon of olive oil is enough to make lake waves disappear in an area of ​​2000 sq.m.!

The olive oil quickly spreads on the water surface, creating a protective layer of oil molecules, which prevents wind to generate waves on the water surface.

Dr. Greg Kestin, physics lecturer at Harvard University published a video on YouTube carrying out the experiment and has gathered thousands of views.

See the amazing video in this link with a detailed explanation by the scientist!
