WITH A ORDINARY STRAW!

In this science magic trick, you cause an ordinary straw to penetrate deeply into an apple by simply thrusting the straw. You need to practice to develop a great aim and the simple technique.

With little science and practice, you can actually cause an ordinary straw to completely pass through the apple!

WARNING
Please be careful with this science magic trick because if you hit your hand with the straw, you can injure your hand.

TRICK
It’s all in how you hold the straw. It’s important that when you grip the straw, you hold it near the end and place your thumb on the end, sealing the straw. Rest the apple on a bench or table. Holding the straw in your hand with one end sealed, quickly thrust the straw into the apple, keeping your hands away from the apple. If you are having little success, try trimming the straw to a shorter length.




SCIENCE BEHIND

With your thumb on the straw’s end, you seal the straw. And when you thrust the straw into the apple, air is trapped in the straw which causes the straw to become surprisingly rigid. It’s this rigidity of the straw, caused by the trapped air, which allows the straw to penetrate the apple.
