Abstract

Submit your own photos of “visual Visual Physics physics”: email pictures to tpt@ Jennifer J. Birriel appstate.edu Morehead State University Morehead, KY Ice flowers form when the temperature is below freezing: capillary action inside the stem of a plant draws liquid water up the stem and the water freezes as it seeps into the open air. A “flower” is formed as the plant pumps more water, forming a continu- ous stream of ice. This flower was one of many observed while hiking the Sheltowee Trace in Bath County, KY, in December 2016 when the local temperature was 18°F. 192 The Physics Teacher ◆ Vol. 56, March 2018 DOI: 10.1119/1.5025311
