    When I saw these experiments on screen, i thought that these experiments was just simple and boring.
    But when I actually attempted them myself, I ended up with a giggle of amazement.
    Before you determine your opinion on these phenomena, experience them yourself!

    1)Not sure about the crane itself but our nature wants to balance things evenly across all things whether it's a stick or standing on one foot centering your mass
    2) i guess when you flip the phone upward the air resistance increases due to the change of the surface of the phone which causes it to unbalance naturally , like a helicopter without a tail rotor
    3) not sure exactly how it works on this one , but my guess it works the same way if you rub a pencil with a towel and put a little wood stick on a thin-stable edge and spin it with the repelling pencil
    4)there is extra iron concentrated in the cereal which allows it to react to magnet( i saw a video somewhere where hemoglobin (alot of blood) react to neodymium magnet
    5)much like a hot air ballon works

    #4 cereal isn't charged. It's the neutrality charged water being attracted to the magnet. As we know with the law of electric charges, neutral objects attract to either positive or negatively charged objects. Since water it neutral and it's in the cereal it's attracted to the magnet

    1 - is mass friction, it happen because the heavier mass have more friction and also the heavier mass pulls down to its direction causing bigger friction.
    2 - air resistance, the bigger the area the more resistance against the air, causing the phone to rotate to all direction.
    3 - water is diamagnetic object which can weaken magnet power equal to the diamagnetic power, so the stronger the magnet the less the diamagnetic can resist, and the stronger the diamagnetic power the less the magnet can pull.
    4 - an average cereal contain a small amount of iron that enough to react to magnet.
    5 - The ash of the teabag is light and doesn't require much force to lift it. As the warm, less dense air rises, it has enough force to lift the ash of the teabag.

    Cereal: Paramagnetism.
    Cane: At each point as you slide the fingers, since you are keeping the cane balanced, net torque is zero. So, center of mass of the fingers has to be below the CM of the cane.
    Water: Once polarized and turned to the direction of the field, water column develops charges along the sides. This charge is moving due to water falling, so current is produced. This is magnetism.
    Rocket + Phone: OK, these just blew my mind.

  • Dwight Schrute

    I'm assuming the cerial is magnetic due to the iron in it. As for the phone flip one, I'm going to guess that it's due to the unbalanced weight of the machinery inside of the phone.

    For Number 1: Humans aren't naturally/normally good at calculating center of mass. What they ARE good at is balancing things. Human fingers want balance and incline towards it if an object is placed on top of them.

    The cane may work by friction, the end with more mass will have more friction on that finger and allow the other to glide more freely, at the end, you're in the center.

    the reasons are :-

    2. momemt of inertia of the phone is greater along longer side .
    3. water contains impurities like minerals.
    4. serial is attracted by magnet bcoz it contains iron .
    5. the ash moves up due to low air pressure above it caused by upward motion of smoke .

    1 Static friction becomes greater when one of your supports comes closer to the center of mass. So one finger moves until it's sliding friction is > the static friction of the other finger and the roles reverse.
    2 The insides of the phone are not symmetrical in weight. The battery on the left side of the phone has more mass than the circuitry on the right side. It's only apparent on the axis he's talking about because the phone is more symmetrically spread out about them. It has a lot to do with rotational momentum and moments, which is more than I want to go into at the moment...ha.
    3 Tap water is quite conductive and it is electrically connected to ground. The charge on the cup is creating a capacitive effect on the charges in the water (not necessarily the water itself) and pulling the water stream, which stays cohesive due to surface tension, towards the cup.
    4 Many cereals are fortified with iron for health reasons, iron is magnetically conductive, so viola.
    5 The fire creates a plume of heated air going upward, sucking air from below. The tea bag is turned into ash, ash is very light and so the leftover airflow from the fire propels the light ash upward.

    Well i do have an explanation for the tee bag rocket, its to do with my model of gravity, and thanks, i will use water charges as one more of my proofs. In the teebag experiment, the amount of mass was burned away, leaving a structure light enough to be lifted by the energy created in combustion, this ten following the air dynamic, and heating surrounding air assisting in the rise.

    The first one works because the finger that’s closeset to the center of mass dosent move because there is more weight on it. When the other finger gets closer than the other one the weight goes to that finger and this alternates until their both in the center.

  • Thorne
    Thorne 4 месяца назад

    For the phone the weight isn't distributed evenly as you think. If you place a pin in the center of height and width you'll find that it starts falling to one side, now that you give it acceleration it will will turn the the heavier side.
    As for the teabag, when you lite it the heat fills the inside making the air denser.
    Once it has gotten to a certain size and weight the pressure will have to decrease, as the faster moving molecules will rise lifting the tea bag.
    (To better understand this, lite a fire and a release a small paper directly above and not touching the flame, it will rise until the air is in a normal density)
