The Dimension of the Pore Space in Sponges
Silva, L. H. F.; Yamashita, M. T.
European Journal of Physics, v30 n1 p135-137 Jan 2009
A simple experiment to reveal the dimension of the pore space in sponges is proposed. This experiment is suitable for the first year of a physics or engineering course. The calculated dimension of the void space in a sponge of density 16 mg cm[superscript -3] was 2.948 [plus or minus] 0.008. (Contains 2 figures.)
