Richard is making Candy Floss – in his kitchen…
He starts with a
cylinder of sugar (diameter = 5cm, length = 8cm).
He melts this down.
Then he spins it into a single, long fibre of sugar (a cylinder of cross-sectional diameter 1mm), using his Grandmother’s pedal-driven spinning machine.
What length of Candy Floss (known as ‘Barbe Papa’ in France) does he make?
