Foam Physics Prevents Beer Spills
It turns out the foam dampens the sloshing motion of beer and latte. Since there's no foam on regular coffee, it sloshes much easier.
This study actually has some real world implications. Putting a foam on top of a liquid in a tanker truck, for instance, could make the load more stable.
Isn't science fun?
