Problem 23CQ

You can break a strong wine bottle by pounding a cork into it with your fist, but the cork must press directly against the liquid filling the bottle—there can be no air between the cork and liquid. Explain why the bottle breaks, and why it will not if there is air between the cork and liquid.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 2 When the cork is pressed directly against the liquid in bottle and if pound on the fork by fist, the force applied on cork and the pressure exerted on bottom of bottle work as hydraulic system. The first pressure along the pressure of fluid weight transfers to the bottom. Due to which the bottom of bottle feels a higher pressure, and because of higher force the bottom breaks.

Step 2 of 2
