How To Mak Your Glass Sing!

- Dip your finger into it.
- Hold the base of the glass firmly and press your wet finger of the other hand onto the rim of the glass.
- Move your wet finger slowly around the rim of the glass.
- You will hear the glass singing! This happens because of the vibrations produced by the glass when you move your wet finger around the rim.
You can now try this experiment out with different shaped stem glasses.
