@destin hello smarter, i was thought something that only you are able to show and explain, you can make a video about the strong of the hair? how much carry or pressure these things can support? i hope you read this, ty

Do you think it would be possible to use something like a needle to place a tiny "pixels" of colour into the sirup so we could make an reversible image inside the cylinder or would it get blurred?

Nothing mixed. So there was. No unmixing. Is there a different effect when you vary the velocity of the turning?

Destin, my father is a high school food science/Agriculture/Welding teacher. I think that this demonstration would be awesome in a classroom setting. How many times do you think it would work if done slowly on a stable surface? I'm curious if it would be a one time demo (Per Class Period) or a classroom staple. Keep it up!

Lol you're so worried about your pronunciation of Couette... you were pretty darn close. To be a stickler, though, the 'ou' is pronounced like an English 'w' for something ending up sounding like [kwet].

I’m a jaded, pessimistic 38 year old guy with a 20 year career as a clinician in the NHS over here in the U.K. Not much stops me in my tracks anymore, but that was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Thanks so much Destin! More proof that despite all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world! 🌍 :)

Does anyone else love how the 2 times he miscounted cancelled each other out?
anialator1000000 - 5 days ago
Thankfully miscounting the first time is irrelivant since you will 100% know when you unstirred it without even having to count, but it is funny that he still thought he did 7 both times.

Hi, Destin. Great video as usual. I had an idea for another video. I've always wondered what a fire would look like if you could pause it in time and see it from all angles, using the same effect that they use in the Matrix to pause and rotate around someone during a fight scene. The idea came to me because I'm curious if each flame from the fire is flat / 2D or if it has some 3D shape to it. You can't really tell in person since you can only see a flame from a 2D perspective and it changes so quickly that you can't see the other side or the top before it changes. I'm hoping I explained that well enough. I figured if anyone could make a video like this you could do it. Cheers!

You have demonstrated dense wavelength division multiplexing on fiber optic long haul internet data backbone circuits in fluid instead of in light.

In the case you call shear thinning, we call that optical 'dispersion'.

Please take a look at negative dispersion fiber optics and the related field of pumped amplification of fiber laser signals.

They make the data flow from the Data Center to the next Data Center across the country.

If you ran an electric current through a copper tube filled with ferromagnetic fluid could you produce a larger induction coil with a bigger magnetic field? Or solid copper coil makes most effective induction field?
Can you do induction heating in a vacuum?

Have you checked out the laminar flow used to make our plastic money here in Australia? The flow is over air, making a huge bubble which is liquid at the top and ‘solid’ at the bottom—from what I can see on videos online.

I'd love to do this experiment with my students! Can anyone tell me how to make the crankshaft container he poured everything into?
Mofuggins - 8 days ago
Now the question to ask would be: Is there a number of cranks in the forward direction that could also see it eventually return to its original state.
Zeutrus Bd
Zeutrus Bd - 7 days ago
Nope, because you're just spreading the layers thinner with each crank. I think anyway..

Thank You. I'm going to watch this video once a day this week to get through this hard time.

makes an awesome demonstration of air flow as well ... and for those who think fluid dynamics and air flow arent the same ... you are so very wrong ... they are exactly the same ... they just have different viscosities and so react similarly but more pronounced ... this is why drag reduction works in wind tunnels and water tunnels ... it is essentially the same thing with different densities

I don't think the two cylinders needed to be so different in size a thinner gap would be better because it uses less syrup and mixes faster
