Annual Humphry Davy Lecture

THE MAGIC OF SOAP BUBBLES
Presented by Professor Cyril Isenberg OBE, University of Kent
Everyone has enjoyed blowing bubbles. The scientific and artistic communities have also been fascinated by bubbles; from nuclear physicists to cosmologists and from architects to artists.
The lecture that Professor Isenberg gave demonstrated ,on a large scale, the vibrational properties, the equilibrium and non-equilibrium surfaces and the colours of bubbles and soap films. A property of bubbles is that they will take up the smallest area possible in their formation; the professor showed how this property is used to help in road planning. He gave the example of four towns needing to be connected by the shortest (and so cheapest) road network. By using two Perspex plates and metal pins representing the towns he demonstrated the ideal road network – a surprise shape to all!
