Default 5th grade-will trapped air escape from a hole upside down?

I've got a cup. I'll put a cover on it and poke a small hole in the center. When I turn it upside down in water, will air escape? Why or why not? What is the cause of it not or the cause of it doing so?

Please help. I need the physiological explanation for the outcome.

Hi there! The goal of this forum is to help guide you along your science project, not to answer the questions for you.

For this experiment, since you know what to do, perhaps you could try it and see what happens.

I'm guessing that the air will not escape. It will remain trapped in the cup. But do try out your experiment and let us know your results. Then we'll discuss the scientific principles behind it

All the best!
