The more pages, the more friction! Today Aoife Ryle and Mark Dixon experiment with pages. They layer a page on top of another. The more pages, the more friction; when they try to pull the two books apart, the pages stay stuck together without any glue! How enjoyable; so next time you find your old school notebooks, grab a friend or family member and conduct this experiment. Watch the entire Science Sunday segment below to learn more and see precisely how Aoife Ryle makes the impossible possible.
