We’re guessing that you’ve never stopped to think about the physics behind your Chocolate Fountain, or that it could be a valuable tool for scientists. An article published by the Washington Post explains the work researchers at University College London are doing.
Apparently, the principles governing the chocolate flowing in a Chocolate Fountain are similar to that of lava, and some other too hot to handle substances. Who wouldn’t rather use melted chocolate in their research instead of lava? By the way, be sure to watch the video posted in the article, it’s very cool.
You can check out the full research paper here, published by researchers Adam Townsend and Helen Wilson.
