Episode Summary

You know, Iron (Fe) is not quite all it's cut up to be. The use of magnets is strictly prohibited during this episode. Here is a question from the Look Around You quiz. You are an iron filing. You have fallen out of your packet and are now lying at the bottom of a well in Chichester. Three times a month, a Water Maid pays a visit to the well to gather water for her washing. If the surface area of the well is 750,000 cubic fluorometers, and your own surface area (as a filing) is 0.78mm², what is the probability that the Water Maid will scoop you up in her bucket? (For answer, see Episode Notes, below.)moreless
