High speed photography
Look at the cavity behind the falling object that made this splash--you can learn how this cavity collapses if you check out From Physics Research.
- For more splash photos, see this page by Andrew Davidhazy, especially the splash sequence at the bottom.

Splash (fluid mechanics)
Investigate splashes by dropping different-sized objects into containers of water. Also, you can squeeze drops out of a medicine dropper to make splashes on hard surfaces or on water or milk. (Be sure to do this activity with an adult.) To find out what happens if you drop a half-brick into water, see the photograph at the bottom of Splash (fluid mechanics).
