This Simple Physics Trick Can Turn You Into A Smoke-Breathing Monster

Nov 17, 2015 By Houston Barber

Seeing your breath come out of your mouth is usually a clear sign that the cold weather season is here. But what if you could make your breathe visible, or in the words from this video “make clouds,” appear even when it’s not cold out? That’s the trick on display here as “Physics Girl” from PBS Studios shows us how to form a cloud with your tongue and let it escape through your lips.

By keeping your lips sealed tight, water droplets can form on your tongue. The water droplets eventually become water vapor and escape when your mouth becomes depressurized. Following these steps can turn your breath into clouds or turn you into a smoke-breathing dragon, depending on how far your imagination is willing to take you. Did this trick work for you? Let us know in the comments.
