What you need

 

A bowl

A glass

Water

A tissue

Instructions

 

  1. Fill the bowl with enough water to completely cover the glass.
  2. Scrunch up the tissue and push it into the bottom of the glass.
  3. Turn the glass upside down and submerge it in the water.

Results & explanation


Pull the glass out and the tissue is…Dry!

The air trapped inside the mug is at atmospheric pressure and this keeps the water out of the mug and away from the tissue.
