Why National Create a Vacuum Day?
A vacuum is a space that does not have any matter inside it, thus no air. A special day dedicated to posing the challenge to people to try and create a vacuum of their own. To do so, people are advised to create such a scenario where pressure within an area is lower compared to the amount of pressure surrounding this area.
Noteworthy is the fact that creating a vacuum is not so easy, especially because of the presence of very many small particles in the environment today constantly invading and occupying every space. Nonetheless, it is possible to create a vacuum at the comfort of your home using very simple and easily accessible materials. The simplest tool that you can use is a syringe, where you plug up the end that is open and withdrawing the syringe (pull it back towards you). In doing so, you will have created a space within that syringe that is absent air or particles of matter.
The day can therefore be deduced to having being set in motion as a means to encourage people to learn more about science as it regards creating a space absent air. The highlight of this commemoration however is that you use the simple appliances available around you and not the hardcore scientific equipment present in the laboratory.
