I feel like I’m getting mixed signals from you, physics.

Absolutely Incredible

The little machine is vibrating the molecules of the water at a certain frequency and the stream lets us see the wave of that frequency.

I fucking love physics

There is one moving part here that the description did not mention - the frequency that is being used to vibrate the water stream exactly matches the frequency of the frames of the camera. So, if you were just looking at this system you wouldn’t see this phenomena (you’d see a jumbled stream) but since the camera ‘samples’ the wave patterns at set intervals of time it can let you see the true structure of what is happening.

Instrument dependent phenomena like this are fascinating and have so many consequences for how physics functions at a fundamental level.

Ice circles occur at bends in the river where the accelerating water creates a force called ‘rotational shear’, which breaks off a chunk of ice and twists it around. As the disc rotates, it grinds against surrounding ice, smoothing into a perfect circle.

I’m not too late for the cute lil ghosts, right?

Of course you have to drag it and be amazed

THIS IS THE BEST ONE YET
