Mannequin vs Airbag

The Slow Mo Guys having more fun with airbags, this time in a confined space.

The lads at How Ridiculous say, “Big thanks to the awesome crew at the Gravity Discovery Centre in Gingin for letting us use their 45m leaning tower for our own experiments. If you wanna head out there and check it out, it’s not far from Perth.”

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.
