The Hole in the Teapot
Sreekumar

When I was having breakfast one morning I suddenly noticed that the lid of the teapot had a small hole in it.
I wondered why?



Answers
Anam
The hole on the lid is there so that it will let the steam go
Tanay
The hole is present to expose the tea to air.
Namitha.T.S
It has two purposes. When the tea is hot and if the steam is not allowed to go out then the pot may be over pressurised and explode. When the tea is getting cold, the steam in the pot may condense and vacuum may be developed inside the pot which may buckle the pot.
ria
The teapot has a hole to let steam escape when tea is made in it.
Jinal V Shah
There is a small hole in the teapot for the air circulation. If there is no air circulation then there would be pressure on the tea inside the teapot. If there would be pressure then tea won't come out.
Selina
It needs the high pressure to press out the liquid in the teapot.
Selina
It needs the high pressure to pour the liquid out of the teapot.
sapna
It is to allow the steam which is inside the teapot to come out.
Anam
The lid of the teapot had a small hole in it as it allows the water vapour(heat vapour) to escape, if no hole was made the lid would have burst or would have flown away.
Chirag Sangani
Since the tea stored in the teapot is at a very high temperature, a lot of steam is built around it. If the teapot were to be air-tight, the steam would remain confined in the pot and the pressure would keep on rising. This is dangerous since the teapot can get damaged or it may even explode. Hence, to avoid this, there is a small hole in the teapot which lets the steam to escape.
Yuvapreethi Ganesh
The hole is kept because the steam has to escape.
LOGASHRRI,MALAYSIA
TO LET OUT THE HEAT OF THE DRINKS.
Yuvapreethi
I think it is there for the steam to escape.
Nkitha.
It is for putting tea into a cup.
Chris
My guess is that there needs to be air flowing into the teapot so that when you pour it comes out smoothly. It's the same thing as when you buy a big can of juice and you have to put two holes in the lid when you open it otherwise it glugs out making a mess or it wont pour fast.
Akshita
The hole in the teapot is used to pour tea.
Alex
So the steam could be let out.
Paras Rana
The hole on the top of the teapot has been provided for the entry of air. If the hole is not provided, when you will pour the tea out of the pot the volume of tea that has been poured out will result in a possibility of air to be filled in its place... if the hole is not provided the air will not be able to enter and a vacuum will be created in it. This will result in suction of air from the pouring side.
M.Bhavapriya
The hole allows air from outside to go into the pot so that the air pressure would remain the same and the tea will get poured more easily.
neha
Well I have heard of it for the first time .But I'd like to share my views with you.I think this is so so that the tea is hot but the extra water it hasn't dissolved is evaporated.I maybe wrong.Please tell me the right answer(if its wrong) as soon as you get to know it.
