Scientist Is Nearly Hit By Wrecking Ball To Prove Basic Law Of Physics

The law of conservation is simple enough, stating that energy can not be destroyed, only changed. Physicist Andreas Wahl demonstrates the law in this daring science experiment in which he lets go of a giant wrecking ball by his face and let it swing back at him. Even if you fully understand the science, it can still be very intimidating to let a giant wrecking ball swing right at you.

Anti-Gravity Wheel

Derek Muller of Veritasium demonstrates the true power of gyro precession in this trending video

First, he shows just how heavy a forty pound flywheel is as even a college bodybuilder can’t hold it horizontally. But by spinning the hefty wheel a few thousand RPM, he is able to easily pick up the shaft and even hold it over his head.

Beer Bottle Breaks With Slap Trick In Super Slow Motion

For their latest slow motion science experiment, Gav and Dan of The Slow Mo Guys explain and demonstrate the classic trick to break the bottom of a beer bottle with just a smack. 

By properly holding the neck of a bottle filled a bit of water and slapping the opening, the bottom of the beer bottle will shatter with great force due to a powerful vacuum created. 

With the help of their high tech, 2,500 frames-per-second slow motion camera, viewers can finally see the physics of the bar trick as it quickly plays out.
