Mini-labs Air/water pressure

Today we are doing two mini-labs.

Problem #1: what happens when we have a bottle filled with water with a cap on top, a pin in the side, we pull the pin?  Then, what happens when we remove the cap?

Watch the video after your hypothesis (on mute).  Then watch not muted and complete your conclusion.

Problem #2: What happens when there are three pins in the bottle (one on top, one middle, and one low), with the bottle full, no cap, and all pins removed.  Then what happens when we drop the bottle?
