  • What a great teacher!
    Taking on for science.
    Vacuum eh....
    I can see a better mouse trap coming out of this.
    Not only do you get rid of the mouse,you send it to the next county.

  • The vacuum is causing it not the pressure alone.

  • Interesting! I'd never thought to do that!

    As an aside, the old Victorian era Atmospheric Railways used the same principle whereby a vacuum was used to propel a complete railway train - either by using the atmosphere to push it directly, or attaching the train to a smaller pulling unit.

  • Cool. Physics was my favorite class in college. In one class we figured out how much energy, approximately, the United States as a whole uses for electric clocks. This was in like 1984 or 1985, based on the average electric clocks usage times the average number in each households, times the number of households, etc... The number was actually pretty crazy. It wound up being as much electricity as your average commercial power plant produces in two or three days. So if we all weren't so lazy More..
