What happened & Why?

Spining the bottle in a circular motion create a water vortex that looks like a mini tornado.By Suchay Viswanathan

Vortexes are found in nature like tornadoes, hurricanes and waterspouts.The water is rapidly spinning around the center of the vortex due to centripetal force (an inward force directing an object or fluid such as water towards the center of its circular path).

1. Fill the plastic bottle with water unitil it reaches around three quaters full.2. Add a few drops of dish washing liquid.3. Sprinkle in a few pinches of glitter.4. Put the cap on tightly. 5. Turn the bottle upside down and hold it by the neck.6. Quickly spin the bottle in circular motion for a few seconds,stop and look inside to see if you see a mini tornado forming in the water.
