Got a dent in your ping pong ball?

dented ping pongWhat is worse than playing table tennis when your very last ball gets a dent in it?!  Well fear not my little ping pongers you just need a little chemistry in your life.

Simply put the dented ball in a pan of boiling water.  The heat of the water will increase the temperature of the gases inside the ball.  As the gases heat up they will expand and your dent will be a thing of the past.
