I've got a Nutrafin Hagen CO2 yeast system that has a ladder the bubbles go up.
As they fo up this ladder they get smaller but you can plainly see the
bubbles shrinking slower and slower as they go up.
I can take a video of it and post it if it's of interest?
Surely as they get smaller their surface area to volume ratio decreases?
