Put the Hovercraft on a smooth, flat surface, let go of the balloon and give it a flick. 08. The Hovercraft will glide across the surface on a cushion of air. 09. The air in the balloon has to go somewhere. 10. So, it flows out of the balloon and goes under the plate. 11. The layer of air under the plate takes up space so it keeps the plate and table from rubbing on each other. 12. When objects rub against each other, they create friction. 13. Friction drags on each object and slows it down. 14. The Hovercraft has very little friction because it rests on air. Friday (Excursions) AM (EdGames) PM Just for Fun
