Additional Information
I will do a few of my favorite demonstrations, some of which may work. These include:
How to build a trumpet; Why your voice doesn’t get higher when you breathe helium, nor lower when you breathe sulfur hexafluoride; How to measure the molecular weight of air and helium by sitting on a whoopee cushion; What happens when you breathe sulfur hexafluoride; How to break a wineglass by dropping a loudspeaker on it. I will be assisted in this demonstration by soprano Jolynda Tresner.
