Physics

Synchronizing Metronomes

Synchronizing Metronomes

An incredible demonstration of the laws of physics, as 32 randomly started metronomes reach perfect sync, thanks to the soft board underneath them distributing their energy evenly. (Thanks Jamie!)

Liquid Nitrogen Ping Pong

Liquid Nitrogen Ping Pong

What do you get when you combine a soda bottle, liquid nitrogen, a garbage can and 1500 ping pong balls? Well, it’s sort of like the 4th of July, indoors. Jump to 3:00 if you want to skip the science.

Acoustic Levitation

Acoustic Levitation

Argonne Labs scientist Chris Benmore demonstrates his acoustic levitator, which can make small objects or small amounts of fluids float by encasing them in a standing wave. More here.

Light Bulb Newtons Cradle

Light Bulb Newtons Cradle

While the Newton’s Cradle is known for its nearly perpetual motion and clacky metal balls, we rather like this version, created by Yasutoki Kariya using light bulbs in place of steel orbs.

Water & Sound Illusion

Water & Sound Illusion

By dripping water in front of a speaker, brusspup creates the illusion that the water has frozen in mid-air. And by changing the frequency, he can make it look like the water is flowing backwards.

R/C Helicopter Physics

R/C Helicopter Physics

This video kicks off Smarter Every Day’s series of lessons about the helicopter physics, but it quickly turns into a lesson in R/C flying skills which seemingly defy physics and reason.

Quantum Wipeout

Quantum Wipeout

While we dream about the future of racing, the Japan Institute of Science and Technology build sweet tracks for Wipeout model vehicles and race them using quantum levitation.

The Hairy Ball Theorem

The Hairy Ball Theorem

Today’s Minute Physics lesson teaches us something we never really needed to know – no matter how hard you try, you can’t comb a hairy ball. Is this what we’re teaching kids in school these days?

Quantum Levitation

Quantum Levitation

Tel-Aviv U. demos the perplexing properties of quantum superconductors which will leave non-science types scratching their heads, and us wanting hoverboards made from this stuff.

Physics for Dogs

Help Fido learn some new tricks by teaching him the math and physics behind chasing mailmen, squirrels, counter-surfing, playing fetch and even “strategic” pooping, whatever that means.

Anti-Gravity Machine

Anti-Gravity Machine

Ok, it’s not really an anti-gravity machine, but dropping a stack of neodymium magnets into a piece of copper tubing causes them to float through as if they were in zero-G. Damned physics.

My Little Pony Physics

My Little Pony Physics

If any of you bronies out there ever wondered if the physics in My Little Pony were possible, all your questions are finally answered by MLP geek Beatledude64. Grab the full Powerpoint deck here.

Pendulum Waves

Pendulum Waves

By simply arranging a series of different-length pendulums on a metal rack, and letting them loose at the same time, we get an incredibly mesmerizing show that seems to go on for days.

Inductance

Inductance

By taking a gigantic electromagnet and a bunch of pit balls loaded with their own electromagnets, Physalia Studio manages to create the greatest plaything ever. Or it could just be CGI. Still cool.

Toribash

Toribash

Despite the overly simplified ragdoll style of Toribash, it’s an incredibly deep fighting game, which lets you create your own insane martial arts moves on PC, Mac or Linux. Best part, it’s free.
