MS 4.0 What’s in Chapter 4?

Please sign up for the course before starting the lesson.

  • In Chapter 4 we explore the physics of milk foam. We explore the forces that lead to an increase in the yield stress of the milk as liquid drains out of the foam.
  • We discuss the anti-foaming effects of lipolysis and Ostwald ripening and how to avoid or counteract them. 
  • We look at the design principles behind the milk pitcher, the steam wand, and the steam boilers and discuss the ways in which the latent heat of condensation is used to increase the efficiency of heating and foaming milk.
