a floating macbook air – discuss

I’ve found something that relates Apple stuff to unit 1 of the Higher Physics course.

Take a look at this video.  It shows an Apple Store display for the new, smaller MacBook Air.

You folks know enough Physics (Newton’s laws, density, pressure, buoyancy, tension) to put together a reasoned argument whether or not that window arrangement should work.

Have a go at describing/explaining/justifying whether or not the MacBook Air should float.  When you’re done, see whether your analysis is anything like Rhett Allain’s blog post about this window display.

Did you think like a Physicist?
