The Engineering of Droplets

Bill the engineerguy describes how the minimization of surface area and inertia compete to form droplets. He then shows how engineers use this knowledge to create precisely-sized droplets in a commercial inkjet printer — the type used to print expiration dates on food packages.

Before it’s totally destroyed, that is. Destin of SmarterEveryDay aims to find out, filming at 100,000 frames per second.

Four Revolutionary Riddles

Not about the war, but in terms of rotation. First, the riddles:

And then Veritasium gives us the answers:

From YouTuber Mark Rober, “I collected data at the carnival for a full day. Then I used that information to figure out which games are the biggest scams using science to analyze them and show you how to beat them. I also figured out how much the carnival actually pays for the prizes so even if you win, you lose. And then I visited the carnival with my professional baseball playing buddy to dominate all the games. It worked well.”
