Mr. Wizard explains G?forces as it relates to airplane pilots in dives. He explains G-Force & Ocean Motion. LARGE WASHER thru SMALL HOLE - Mr. Wizard challenges Tanis to get a washer through a hole in a piece of paper. The hole is smaller than the washer. He folds the paper along the diameter of the hole and bends the paper. The washer falls through the now enlarged hole. PLANTS THAT EAT ANIMALS - You may have hiked in areas like this because they're found in the United States and Canada. You probably walked right by plants that eat animals.

FLOATING CORK - Eugene pours water into a glass with a cork with a nail inserted into it. Mr. Wizard challenges Eugene to float the cork in the center of the glass. The cork floats next to the sides of the glass in spite of his efforts to move it to the center. Mr. Wizard explains! AVALANCHE - One of the most terrifying things that can happen to a mountain climber or a skier is an avalanche. Wind, earth tremors, even walking across unstable snow can start the avalanche. As the snow slides down the side of the mountain, it picks up more snow and increases in speed. SPEAKING COMPUTER - The computer greets Leila with a generated voice. Mr. Wizard shows her how he programmed the computer to say words. STAR TRAILS - This looks like an abstract design of circles within circles. But it's a photograph of the night sky.
