5 University Life Ein Trinkhalm (s. Bild) wird in Seifenlauge getaucht und wieder herausgezogen. Dabei bildet sich in ihm ein Pfropfen. Nun wird daraus eine Seifenblase mit etwa 8 cm Durchmesser geblasen. Wie dick wird die Seifenblasenhaut ungefähr sein? linear unabhängig…..linear independent Senkrecht….perpendicular Hintereinanderausführung….composition (f g)
