Episode Summary

Fluid Flow and Friction
The show opens, and the remote camera crew finds Walker in a bathtub. It's an opportunity for Walker to explain the myth of water draining in a certain direction–the "Coriolis force". In the studio, Walker does a number of demonstrations about fluid flow, explaining why liquid poured from a bottle will sometimes run down the side of the bottle. Then Walker delves into friction, ultimately pulling a tablecloth from a set of dishes. The piéce de résistance is Walker balancing a spoon from his nose.moreless
