Of Course, the tanker implosion also demontrates the amazing power of WATER and phase change
Lucas, thanks for the video pick
I like your observation of "tipping point".....
here is another example of "splosive" phase change
We are all used to the standard reference of 14.7 psi at sea level, but when you convert that to pounds per sq ft it becomes scary, 2117 pounds for every ft². Buoyancy is good.
Hi Bud, I stumbled on an interesting comment recently that I had never seen before....
A different way of visualizing the "scale" of One Pascal
One Pascal (one Newton per square meter) is very similar to a dollar bill(or any other US bill)
What is this apparatus for :S Is it some sort of air compressor?
I hesitate to answer your question because it looks like you were merely trying to post a link to your website. Just in case you were serious...The photo shows the Magdeburg Hemispheres
An Explanation of the "Apparatus" was posted below the photo.... I will repeat it:
another explanation can be found here:
Lol not at all john. Just interested in what it was. I have a degree in thermo dynamics and looks simular to a apparatus we worked with back at university.
Here is a Link to the Main Page.....
For All sorts of Vintage Instruments and Apparatus
and here is a link to a most excellent Physics book from 1875
the Illustrations are outstanding
Hi, Lucas "the Heretic" and "Airtight Sheathing Nut"
I am glad you joined HEP
Yes.... I do like Science Videos
Here is one from the not-so-nutty Professor.... that explains the Tanker Implosion
on a slightly smaller scale
and here is another simple video .... showing similar results ...but different
there is a twist in this video....(the candle)
there is more going on here than just condensation and the atmosphere
Even better (in some ways) than Professor Julius Sumner Miller
Professor Walter Lewin
