How a Straw Works

Courtesy Lloyd S.:

This video shows, oddly enough, the physics of sucking a liquid from a straw. The straw deals with the pressure of the air and the pressure from within on your mouth. In this video they try to suck liquids from increasingly high heights. They calculate that the Max height possible is 10.3 m, yet when they attempt this height, they fail. I never realized how scientific drinking a coke could be.
