From “science on a budget” YouTuber Nick Moore, watch this drop of mercury being vibrated from ~120Hz down to ~10hz. We’ve seen resonance demonstrated before in Chladni Pattern videos: sound frequencies become visualized as patterns via the vibrations. Higher frequencies = more complex shapes and patterns. Adam Frank explains in more detail at NPR:

In the video above, sound waves passing around and through a drop of mercury set it oscillating. But the physics of the system — determined by things like the speed of sound in mercury and the strength of its surface tension — allow some sound waves to excite special vibrations in the drop. In other words, the mercury drop has resonances with the sound at specific frequencies.

These are called the resonant modes of the drop. When the frequency of the sound waves matches the frequency of the drop’s resonant modes, highly organized patterns of pulsation are triggered. You know you’ve hit strong resonances when something like a multiple-armed, star-shaped pattern emerges.

It’s a remarkable reminder of the hidden architectures embedded in the world around us.

In the archives: sculpting in solid mercury, with liquid nitrogen and videos about the elements.

it’s a metaphor

The best part is that the crab is the symbol for the zodiac sign Cancer, so in a way even the crab itself is a metaphor

Smoking crab is back for another exciting new meme.

could someone please make me a suit of chainmail using this method?

I didnt know where this was going at first but then

wow

fuckyeahfluiddynamics:

Many systems can exhibit unstable behaviors when perturbed. The classic example is a ball sitting on top of a hill; if you move the ball at all, it will fall down the hill due to gravity. There is no way to perturb the ball in such a way that it will return to the top of the hill; this makes the top of the hill an unstable point. In many dynamical systems, a very small perturbation may not be as obviously unstable as the ball atop the hill, especially at first. Often a perturbation will have a very small effect initially, but it can grow exponentially with time. That is the case in this video. Here a tank of fluid is being vibrated vertically with a constant amplitude. At first, the sloshing effect on the fluid interface is very small. But the vibration frequency sits in the unstable region of the parameter space, and the perturbation, which began as a small sloshing, grows very quickly. In a real system (as opposed to a mathematical one), this kind of unstable or unbounded growth very quickly leads to destruction. (Video credit: S. Srinivas)

What time various cities wake up. Complement with the wakeup times of famous writers, then see the science of our internal time.

People wake up at or after 8am? Jesus christ where can I get on that train?
