 ===== Purpose ===== ===== Purpose =====
  
 +Displays an unusual example of a reversible processes in a highly viscous liquid. After some dye has "​dispersed"​ in the glycerol, the handle can be turned to make it all come back together. ​ With a reversible process, it's possible to turn back the hand of time.

 ===== Setup ===== ===== Setup =====
  
- +  - Inject some dye into the container using the syringe. 
- +  ​- ​Turn the handle to disperse the dye. 
-1. Inject some dye into the container using the syringe. +  ​- ​Turn the handle in the opposite direction to reverse the dispersion effect.
-2. Turn the handle to disperse the dye. +
-3. Turn the handle in the opposite direction to reverse the dispersion effect. +

 ===== Notes ===== ===== Notes =====
  
-The handle can be turned a limited number of times before it is impossible to reverse the effect. ​ ​Updated on: 06/12/13+The handle can be turned a limited number of times before it is impossible to reverse the effect. ​Turning the handle with a jerky motion may inhibit the dye coming back together.
