i really liked it because i'm very curious about physics topics and unsolved equations but the problem is i haven't learned physics much .only in mid school and high school
does anyone know any physicist youtuber?
or a way to teach myself college's physics

are those snatoms in the cup one?

The first one is actually very easy to explain.
When you have a lengthy object like a cane, the amount of force applied to your hands depends on where your fingers are placed. If you place them exactly 10cm from each end, the end with the most weight will apply most force, and the other hand will easier move towards the middle. When that happens, there is a loss of force at the other end, and when it becomes small enough, the hand at that end will start to move towards the middle.

Cereal has iron. That's all I got.

Автор cragnog ( назад)
that first one depends on you trying not to drop it. If you moved both fingers in at the same rate it would most likely not work, but you changed the rate either finger moved accordingly so that the cane didn't fall either side

CEREAL: it contains iron which is a mineral from which we get bones

TEABAG: the heat actually made it lighter than air as hot objects tend to go up

CEREAL IS MAGNETIC BECAUSE IT HAS MOFUCKING IRON IN IT. and it is also less dense than water so it can be moved around by the magnet while floating around on water. OR BECAUSE THE WATER IS ATTRACTED TO THE MAGNET SO THE WATER IS PULLING THE CEREAL WITH IT.

IS IT NOT SO THAT: hydrogen atoms are positive and oxygen atoms negative in H2O, Your body released e- and became less negatively charged, the cup absorbed the negative e- and became more negatively charged, cup= -, H= -, cup and H attracted, water drawn to cup?

My takes are:

1- The finger that is closer to the center of mass supports more weight, and thus has a stronger contact and friction than the finger far away. This always makes the finger further away to move more easily to the center of mass than the one further away.
2- Aerodynamics, turbulence, and the fact that the secondary rotation axis has less moment of inertia.
3- The electric field from the cup is not uniform. I've heard that the electric field generated from rubbing can actually be very powerful.
4- Cereals have a lot of iron (?).
5- Hot air rises, taking the remains of the bag with it when it's light enough.

One side of the phone is heavier, consequently making the phone rotate on a turned axis

The cereal attracts to the magnet due to the great amount of iron in the cereal

Автор Wolf Edmunds ( назад)
When you flip the phone like that, there are two ways the phone can rotate. Along the horizontal (pitch) and the vertical (roll) axes on the screen. It can't spin along the plane of the screen (yaw), for obvious reasons. The phone has a much larger moment of inertia around the pitch axis than the roll axis. Since angular momentum is Iω where ω is the rotational velocity, the smaller the moment of inertia, the faster something spins given the same momentum (like a figure skater). Thus the phone is very sensitive to rolling and very insensitive to pitching, meaning a tiny torque in the roll axis will send it spinning while a great torque in the pitch axis can barely turn it.

Kind of an old video to be commenting on like this, but here's my text wall anyway. I don't know if any of this has already been said since I don't see anyway to search youtube comments?

(1) As you move your fingers inward, your brain tries to maintain the balance by subtly changing the speed of each finger. You can kinda see him doing this. Either that, or it has something to do with the weight on either side of your fingers changing as you move them in. This might cause the friction to change thereby slowing or speeding your fingers and maintaining the balance.
(2) There is a good video explaining the phone flipping thing but I don't remember who did it.
(3) Hmm, honestly I always believed the water was attracted because it was polar, like you said. I feel like I remember hearing that static electricity has a very strong gradient but I don't know.
(4) Most cereal has dietary iron added to it, but it is actually just very small iron filings. If you blend cereal up, put it in water in a clear container, and touch a magnet to the bottom, you'll see a small pile of iron filings. So that's why it's attracted to a magnet.
(5) As the tea bag burns it looses mass. Once enough, or all, of it has burned it is light enough to be picked up by the small current of heat created by the flame.

Just some thoughts. I'm curious to see what others have to say.

the phone thing is to do with the airodynamics

Автор PlayfulNikita ( назад)
With center of mass, you actually balance the object, rather than magically meet your fingers in the middle. While moving fingers towards the center of mass, he was waiting for one of his finger to advance further for balance - that is why you can do it at any speed and start at any point. Watch his finger suddenly stop and wait for the other finger to catch up for balancing the object.

1. Friction increases on one finger when the stick balance its side. Then this finger won't move until the situation is inverted (the other finger moving)

Автор green oranges ( назад)
For the last two things, cereal contains lots of fortified iron and for the teabag rocket the fire gives it heat and when the bat is fully burnt it floats up ( because heat rises ) as the ash is almost lighter than air it just needs that small amount of heat to make it rise like a hot air ballon it also works with napkins if you put the napkins on the top of a fire they will float up and start flashing

the cup attracts it because everything exerts magnetic force or gravitational energy in magnetism we assume every atom to be a magnet and when we static charge the cup , The atoms get aligned and therefore making it a magnet and it makes a magnetic field so eventually exerting gravitational energy and pulling the stream of water

The center-of-mass demonstration with the cane is not a physics phenomenon; it's a psychological phenomenon. You can't do it in "one shot" because your brain cannot accurately estimate the distribution of mass across the length of the cane. But you can do it by moving your two hands inward because you are successively computing, re-computing, and adjusting; as you move your hands you get visual and tactile feedback that lets you correct as you go.
Maybe I'll think about some of the others tomorrow.

Cereal is magnetic because it contains iron.

Tea Rocket: My guess is that it heats the air and it creates different airpreassures, so when burned out it will get sucekd up in the air.

for the first one it works with the f=u*N and at every state, the finger will move if the N is "=" to each other and then will find the center of mass

The cereal had iron I'm sure that's why it reacts to magnets

Автор Name Mrname ( назад)
1: When more mass is at one side, gravity pulls it more, less friction at the OTHER finger, then, when more mass is on the other side thr other fingers goes closer, this happens only 1 time i think, and it doesnt lift fully because then the finger supporting it would need to move
2: Air resistance OR instabilities caused by the metal frame-heavier i know objects have a center of mass idk.
3: Quantum magic or awesome science
4: all objects can get magnatically aligned from strong magnets. The water kills all ftiction so it moves easily. I think this has sth to do with 3
5: The material is very light and in the end a very thin string survives. The hot air goes up, air resistance from the string pulls it up.
I say this in all my science comments, this is what happens when a small person is curious about EVERYTHING from 8 years old

The cereal is attracted to magnets because it includes a very small percentage of iron. In Third grade they thought us something similar.

Автор AdminTuber ( назад)
center of mass- when one has more mass over it - friction is higher (friction coefficient x normal) other moves --> finally will reach center of mass

The amazing thing about our universe is that it can be comprehended; it does certain things and does not do others, and we can know what those laws are. The laws of physics control your life in a way that you are not aware of. *Google truth contest* and read "The Present" to see how we are not in control. The 1st 3 pgs. sum it up nice.

probably because it's not magnetic at all and its something else. great videos BTW. Liked James Hadfield's version of Bowie's Space Oddity.

Автор Dan neeah ( назад)
on #3.he never gave a reasonable explaination so i guess the charged Water molecule theory still wins

Автор Mukhamed Zarylkanov ( назад)
first phenomena happened in that way, because there is a friction between stick and finger. Friction is bigger in that side, which is bigger on weight. So finger moves slowly at bigger friction.
