Soap Films and Bubbles

25th Annual Public Science Lecture

Prof Alan Davies, Professor Emeritus, School of Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics, University of Hertfordshire

We are all familiar with soap bubbles. But how are they formed? Why are they spherical? What causes the beautiful colours that shimmer in a bubble? To answer these questions, we shall start by describing how soap films form and how they produce bubbles. We shall describe the properties and the structure of films, both static and when they vibrate. The talk will include a variety of practical problems including how soap films may be used to solve problems such as the routing of underground pipes and power lines.
