buffered water solution


a: buffered water solution ~
b: carpeted room


"You can think of pure water as a very echoing room. Every small sound bounces around and sounds very loud. By contrast, a buffered water solution is like a room with all the floors and walls covered in carpet - small sounds get swallowed up by the carpet and are harder to notice, but you can still hear large sounds."
