How about you try putting a green screen in front of the accelerator? This way you can ad any effect that you want to the ball footage. Then maybe you can use the device for a commercial and get some more funding for these projects.

Nice job, team! The sprinkles was my favorite! The mirror was beautiful, too. I'd love to see you shoot it through a long tank of water (say, 1x1x3 meters). Bonus points if there are bits of glitter or some other small particle with neutral buoyancy in suspension so you could better see the shockwave. I bet you'd see a trail of near-vacuum behind the ball along with a sweet shockwave progression along the forward axis. You could use it to measure the shock speed in water. After the initial "plowing" of the water, it would explode the clear walls in a neat way. Glass walls shattering would be neat, but some kind of plastic with a different shear modulus might ripple more before shattering outright. The explosion of water out the sides after the walls burst would be visual icing on the cake.

@Ayxl Toh Rapid compression of the air between the baseball and the target increases the temperature and causes a brief ignition. I think it's a similar process to what is seen in Destin's video about mantis shrimp punches he made years ago. The shrimp punch so fast that a cavity is created in the water. The water rushes back so quickly to fill the cavity and with so much pressure that the rapid compression causes a brief ignition/spark. You could also look into the difference between gasoline engines and diesel engines. Gasoline engines use a spark plug that creates a spark which ignites the fuel/air mixture in the cylinder. Ignition of diesel engine cylinders is caused by the extreme compression of the fluids. Diesel engines have glow plugs which are hot and help create the conditions necessary for the ignition to occur, but the extreme rapid compression is the main reason the cylinders combust.

Drag increases at the square of velocity, so if pressure/velocity has been linearish, eventually it will effectively level off unless you hockey stick your pressure to regain linear velocity increase. Which you definitely should do. Shoot for hypersonic, may need a big block of metal for a chamber... And a stronger barrel... and your new tungsten/steel baseball...and a tesla model S powered rail gun propulsion system...and pretty soon you have an asteroid impact simulation...but you need a longer travel range to measure speed...so you build a big circular range...and its cooler than LHC, cause there's mayonnaise, and eventually you accelerate a metal baseball to lightspeed and open a portal across space time, and then Stargate is real- Which is the ultimate goal after all. Think of the virality of that phantom flex 2500 footage when the ball is suddenly fielded by an ancient egyptian-inspired pharaoh's guardsman with a mini nuclear power cattle prod strapped to his back and Don Mattingly custom glove covered in a barely visible inertia net. Think of it.

I would like to know something -- Why, when the ball impacts at 5:23:75ish, does there appear to be a flash on the impact like something ignited. Is that caused by the incredible impact creating a some sort of combustive effect? Looks crazy cool! I have a screen capture of it that shows the flare-out of something definitely looking a lot like combustion.

@Maelstrom I was thinking more about gas comming out from the impact itself. Comming out so fast that ignited and turned in to plasma. I wonder if air when accelereted can ignite itself and generate and release any energy (static). Almost same as it appends with lithnings. friction + static = release of energy (ignited air /plasma).

Vor 22 Tage

@marco brinca I'm not sure. It's unlikely as there is only kinetic energy in play here and I'm note sure it's enough to excite a material from solid to plasma. As I previously mentioned its most likely a kinetic -> heat+light conversion in that moment of impact.

Hey Destin! Love your work, bud! Im curious if youd ever be interested in making a video diving into the science that goes into Direct Drive ( DD ) force feedback (FFB) wheelbases used in sim racing. The general concept of the motor is interesting, but the really interesting thing is how they translate the data into signals that give the user feedback, which feels like the feedback one would get in a real car. Interesting stuff. Keep up the good work!!

Amazing stuff. With the Gong: I think the experiments could benefit from something like an exhaust-redirect so the pure force of the Baseball can be observed longer / better so that the exhaust gas from the canon does not interfer with it. Obviously no easy task and no Idea if "easily done" But still amazing that the baseball just ripped through the gong and it didn't even move.

You're almost correct. It is not the surface tension that keeps it from sliding down. The water doesn't slide down because of the wetting properties of the spider silk overcoming the force of gravity. The reason it breaks up into small droplets is due to the rayeligh-plateau instability caused by the surface tension.

Some of the same principles apply when working with explosives. The shock wave (rebounding pressure wave) is cool, it can be bounced off objects and cause increased over-pressure on soft body objects in the wave path. Pneumatic canon is neat, but try it using shaped explosive against a plate, turn the plate into a plasma ball knocking hole through thick steel.

5:23 just at the moment of impact. A tiny flash can be seen. It creates such an insane amount of pressure in the air at the moment of impact that the air actually ignites and you can see a flash and small amount of smoke. Which when we’re talking about a baseball and some putty. I find that extraordinary that the air literally combusts in a micro explosion. My first thought was the mantis shrimp punch. Which also has such speed and power that it creates a micro explosion.

From a universal point of view that’s exactly what’s happening. We’ve only existed for a tiny tiny fraction of the time the universe has existed. To the universe, Earth has just suddenly popped up and rapidly became a life filled world, while to us it took so so long for that to happen. Same thing as the High speed camera. The ball crosses the distance between the cannon and the finish wall in less than a blink of an eye, while to the high speed camera it can take minutes for the ball to transverse that distance.

What is really amazing to me is that the ball has absolutely no spin on it at all. So that makes it a knuckleball and we all know a knuckleball moves a lot when thrown by a professional picture.

I would like to see more focus on the impact explosion that takes place. I think that is the source of that Shockwave that u saw and it is the point that I find most interesting. It seems to happen most often at 1.5 mach+. I have seen it in many slomo bullet impacts but seeing it with a baseball provides a larger surface area for the anomaly to propagate and show a more visible example. Love your experiments and look forward to more.

Can you do a video on friction? Specifically rolling or sliding friction? Back in physics class I remember that friction was dependent on weight. My question is when this pertains to tires. Specifically bigger and smaller one and different types. Why do rock crawlers air down to get more surface area on the rock when frictions is dependent on weight and not surface area.

I was interested in the flash of light when the baseball impacted the sprinkles container, like some part of the label flash-burned due to the friction, or maybe it was the nitrogen-rich air being compressed so quickly against the glucose in the sprinkles and formed a tiny bit of nitroglycerin, which then exploded. Actually, that would also explain the shockwave you saw with the noise filters off. Just a theory.

Hey destin i know you only use this cannon for short range testing but may i suggest for the future trying to put a hop up unit (mostly used in airsoft guns) to it? This is a small device in the barrel wich pushes on the top of the ball to give it backspin and a way steadier flight and more range. (Might work better with full smooth balls than balls with stitching but that's also a fun learning curve). Love your videos man.

I’d like to suggest firing this through a smoke screen (like one produced by a fog machine), on a night with a new moon, with a leveling laser beam cutting through the plane of motion. This would be a really interesting way of capturing the air currents around the ball much like a PIV experimental setup.

It would be awesome to see it around Mach 0.8 to Mach 1.2 to see the transonic region. Especially on a baseball. I’m in aerospace engineering so everything I study aerodynamically is airfoils and fuselages. But never quite bluff hours like a baseball. So that would be really cool to see in the transonic region.

7:20 The spider silk has hydrophilic parts in the protein, the dew forms centered on them, but if it's not a wetted part, it's not easily wetted. It's probably an evolutionary thing that helped spiders get water without risking drowning. Surface tension is a big issue when you're that small, the surface tension of the water is higher than the force you can exert to pull yourself out, so if one part gets wetted, you're going to get stuck, many araneomorphs get their air through spiracles, rather than book lungs, so even if they do get out of a puddle, they're going to drown, or at least be a lot slower. Not having to go to the ground for water also means they're less likely to get stepped on or hunted by ground predators, at least when they're in their webs, birds usually stay clear of them. I have observed the same silk wetting phenonmenon with my mygalomorph spiders, both tarantulaes and funnelwebs, but to a lesser extent. though the tarantula's web seems to have something soluble in it, which acts as a surfactant, allowing the water to basically turn into a bubble and cover the gap between the web, I've seen her drink from it. She's a desert tarantula, so maybe something to do with stopping moisture from leaving her burrow, or efficient collection of dew? She still has a water dish and she will drink from that if I haven't misted her cage in a while. But it's a really cool phenomenon, I'd like to check how other webs react, but I can only get native Australian spiders here. TL;DR it's just that only certain points on the silk strand are easily wetted, all the dew that forms flows to those points, if they oversaturate, they drop off.

For y'alls safety, when loading a muzzle loading device, NEVER stand in front of or put your hand in front of (shown at between 48-50 seconds in when the softball is being loaded) the muzzle to load it. When holding an implement (the ramrod y'all are using at about 40ish seconds in), don't stand in the blast cone of the muzzle, and when holding implements point your thumbs down range. This makes it so that if the implement launches for ??? reason, instead of instinctively grabbing the implement, the implement will slip through your hands resulting in less catastrophic injuries. I'm SURE that this is "less important" with air powered launchers, but, safety habits like this mean fewer risks of injury overall.

Vor Monat

As you mentioned it's less important in this circumstance due to the lack of black powder, as is typical of muzzleloading weapons. In this circumstance there is no risk of a random spark causing the gun to fire. That said I think your suggestion of caution is still applicable.

The slo-mo on the gong looked like a punch from the One Punch Man; the way that ball impacted so powerfully that the gong was still even after being penetrated...and THEN the aftershock sent the whole rig flying back -- very reminiscent of comics or anime.

The baseball far exceeds the acceleration of the subsequent air blast. Could some sort of displacement effort be made to eliminate its effect? Would you want to, is another question - but sometimes I'm interested in seeing just the balls' impact, without the air blast. A sensor indicating projectile escape trips a valve, or lever? (long time listener, first time caller - thanks for what y'all do.)
