    Do you like popcorn?

    Read in the Deseret News about scientists perfecting the popping of popcorn. I was truly impressed with the real life uses of physics. The popcorn kernal can be used as a miniature model for adiabatic expansion, which means that reducing the pressure around the kernel causes a larger volume and more popped kernels.
