Mythbusters did an entire episode about this years ago. They also came to the conclusion of it's the same but they actually tested it for real by filling up pools with syrup and swimming in it.

Swimming through a more viscous liquid would require more effort / energy. The Mythbusters did an episode on this at human scale

Honestly i would rather swim in water, because (ignoring the mess after) i don’t think i would be able to breathe as well, and i don’t quite have as much torque as that turtle apparently.

Turns out that this scales up too. You can swim approximately as fast in a vacuum as you can in solid rock.

The difference tho is that swimming through a higher viscosity uses more energy so you tire out faster. That’s why the Great Molasses Flood of 1919 that happened in Boston was so tragic.

We saw mythbusters years ago, this is a good reminder of the good 'ole days.

This actually brought memories back for me. This was in an episode of Brainiac where the host swam in a pool of syrup.

For a moment there I thought he was going to swim in syrup to test the theory 🙂. Surprising result though .

It would've been nice to mention that you'd also get tired faster in the fluid with the higher viscosity. But it's a nice video nontheless! 👍

I’m a competitive swimmer as I think that with good technique (meaning you swim with little resistance and have a good catch) because of how much easier it would be to get a more solid and powerful catch you could go faster in the syrup

I love the experiments that you show on your videos. It's such a nice break from all the sad stuff we are constantly viewing. 🙃

But the fact that the pushing force is doubled means you need more energy and strength to keep pushing yourself forward

Huge difference when you actually put a person in a pool of each compared to a super buoyant toy

Very cool and interesting. I never would've even questioned it. I definitely would've said water is quicker lol

also, forward motion will be inconsistent in a viscous fluid. See how the turtle wobbles. That line represents the swimmers spine strength. So you’ll bê disoriented when trying to swim

I remember mythbusters doing this episode and seeing Jamie swim in syrup
