By ignoring the bottom hemisphere of the initial spherical bubble. we can rephrase the problem as follows: Prove that the maximum height of a stack of n hemispherical bubbles is ﬂ if the radius of the bottom hemisphere is 1. We proceed by induction. The case n : 1 is obvious since \/T is the height of the ﬁrst hemisphere Suppose the assertion is true for n : k and let’s suppose we have k + 1 hemispherical bubbles forming a stack of maximum height. Suppose the second hemisphere (counting from the bottom) has radius 7'. Then by our induction hypothesis (scaled to the setting of a bottom hemisphere of radius r), the height of the stack formed by the top Is bubbles is \/E 7'. (If it were shorter, then the total stack of k: + 1 bubbles wouldn’t have maximum height.) The height of the whole stack is H(r) : x/Er + V 1 — r2.
