What’s this? A new It’s Okay To Be Smart video on a Thursday? SURPRISE!
A Slice of (Pizza) Science!
I love pizza. You love pizza. Everyone loves pizza, because let’s face it, much like a taco, pizza is kind of a perfect food. It’s a scientific fact*.
In this video, I’ll show you how you can use math to keep a slice of pizza from drooping thanks to a 19th-century math genius. The bit of edible geometry that keeps your pepperoni from hitting the floor is the same reason that pizza boxes and aluminum cans are so strong despite being made of such thin materials.
Science also has an answer for which size pizza you should order (hint: ALL THE PIZZA). Finally, I’ll show you how to measure the speed of light using your microwave and a delicious frozen pie.
All in 30 minutes or less!
