how many drops of water will a sheild penny hold

Asa and Iris, TX | (none)
We used vineger water and we mixed vineger with water. Resalts 16 water 15 14 vw 13 12 vineger 11 10 9 8 7 7 5 4 3 2 1 We think that the water stuck to the vieger and thats why the vw is not as low as the vinager butnot as high as the water.

the closer the books where the stronger the paper was

We tried penny drop...and built on the idea. We added a layer of paper towels every time we did it. Then we compared how the paper towels looked. No matter how many layers there were, every layer got wet.

celena, WA | (none)
The results I got were that if you use water, it stays the best because of the adhesion and cohesion of a penny

Laura, UT | (none)
I tried all three of them and a penny sure could hold a lot of water but the nickle held the most
