How many water droplets a penny can hold? Students learned about Surface Tension, a property which makes a liquid to acquire the least surface area possible. Students also learned that the Surface Tension is caused by a strong attraction between the molecules of liquid called cohesion that cause them to link together and remain uniform. During experiment, we saw that a penny could hold around 50 droplets. Students were surprised to see this number because most of them guessed 3 or 4 droplets.

  • 38:13 ORNETTE COLEMAN The Shape of Jazz to Come

    "Lonely Woman" is a jazz composition by Ornette Coleman. Coleman's recording of it was the opening track on his 1959 Atlantic Records album The Shape of Jazz to Come. Alongside Coleman's alto saxophone, the recording featured Don Cherry on cornet, Charlie Haden on double bass and Billy Higgins on drums.

    In an interview with Jacques Derrida, Coleman spoke of the origin of the composition:

    "Before becoming known as a musician, when I worked in a big department store, one day, during my lunch break, I came across a gallery where someone had painted a very rich white woman who had absolutely everything that you could desire in life, and she had the most solitary expression in the world. I had never been confronted with such solitude, and when I got back home, I wrote a piece that I called 'Lonely Woman.' "
