Popcorn Gets Poppier

Lehigh was mentioned in an article on the physics of popcorn. “When Paul Quinn was a graduate student at Lehigh University in 1999, he started wondering how to get more pop from his corn,” the article said. “He studied under Daniel Hong of Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, who died two years ago. As Hong and Quinn sat in a session on the physics of food at a meeting of the American Physical Society, they realized that the characteristics of popcorn hinge on the behavior of hot gases. How is it done? The trick is simple: just pop the kernels at a lower pressure. Paul Quinn of Kutztown University in Pennsylvania and Joseph Both of the Stanford School of Medicine in California achieved this by fitting a simple vacuum pump to the pressure cooker in which they popped their corn.”
