NATIONAL CREATE A VACUUM DAY
A space entirely devoid of all matter is a vacuum. On February 4 of every year, we are challenged to create one.
A vacuum is created when the pressure inside a space is lower than the pressure outside the area.
It’s difficult in a world full of minuscule particles of matter to create a space that has absolutely no matter. However, we create partial or simple vacuums at home. One of the easiest ways is using a syringe. By plugging up the open end and pulling back on the plunger, the space inside will be mostly free of matter. There will always be microscopic particles remaining, though.
