One of the important questions in atomic physics is the question of the size of the atom. The study of the size of molecules provides experimentally easier access on a manageable magnitude. Experiment C18.104.22.168 uses simple means to estimate the size of molecules from the size of a patch of oil floating on the surface of water.
