Although this didn’t turn out quite like I’d hoped, I wanted to share it anyway. As usual, this is a highly unscientific experiment with plenty of flaws! When I come up with a good way to simulate the pressure of a baby’s weight and still be able to see the water as it is absorbed, I’ll do another!
More absorbency tests are in the works, including how much different items absorb, and how subject to compression each material is.
I think Amber’s idea would work great!
What about a 2L pop bottle (clear) cut open with a weight attached to the top(up a little from the bottom so you can see) and then hole(s) in the bottom of the bottle so you can pour water “through”?
That’s a great idea!
A bag with rice or beans in it with a hole at the bottom place some tubing in and squirt the water through.
Use a bowling ball to simulate baby weight =)
I’m trying to come up with something that will allow me to pour the water where the weight is, but also still be able to see the water being absorbed. I’ll think of something eventually. I hope. 😉
Very good. Now I have to ask What does ur shot glass say? Lol
I think it just has cocktail glasses on it? It’s part of a set from Target that has to be at least 13 years old! 🙂
