What are the general questions asked by children between the age group of 6-12 years
Get to know the type of Questions that Children Frequently Ask
The following are the answers to some cool posers thought up by children between the ages of six and 12.
When lightning strikes the sea, why don't fish die?It’s because water conducts electricity so well, especially sea water. When lightning strikes the surface, a huge amount of electric charge lands in the sea. But the sea is big and the electricity can quickly spread out and get diluted. Imagine putting a drop of ink into a glass of water – the water will change colour. What if you put the same amount in a swimming pool? It would spread out and you wouldn’t notice any difference.
Why do onions make us cry?Slicing through an onion rips open its cells, releasing various chemicals that react together. After about 30 seconds, a sulphurcarrying gas is produced that mixes with the water in your eye, producing burning sulphuric acid. That’s what causes discomfort. The front of your eyeball – the cornea – is packed with nerve endings to detect any physical or chemical irritants. They sense the chemical and send a signal to your tear glands to boost the production of tears to flush it away.
Why do we shiver when we are cold?The human body needs to stay at the same temperature to survive – about 37 degree Celsius. When you feel cold, tiny sensors in your skin send messages to your brain telling you need to warm up. Your brain sends messages to nerves all over your body telling your muscles to tighten and loosen really fast, which is what we call shivering. It does this because when muscles move they generate heat.
Why does sweet corn come out looking the same as when I ate it?A kernel of corn has a tough, fibrous ‘seed coat’ that stands up to acids and digestive juices in your stomach much like the way a leather jacket protects a motorcycle rider.
