Late on Wednesday
evening November 11th, all 6.2 physicists assembled in the Department. Their
mission: to investigate whether the amount of froth on the top of a glass of
Carling lager decays exponentially.
In most cases the conclusion was a
Readers with a thirst for technical
detail may be interested to know that the decay constant of Carling froth was
found to be -0.015 Hz (+/- 0.005 Hz).
Readers with a middle-order grasp of
the mathematics of exponential decay will know that this is equivalent to a
half-life of 46 seconds.

An enjoyable evening was had by all
(accompanied by EJT, DJP, ACN, JPJD & KAM).
