Magnet Ripping Apart a Soda Can in Ultra Slow Motion
Check out this cool YouTube video, Dianna Cowern of “Physics Girl,” Joe Hanson of “It’s Okay to be Smart” and Joe DiPrima of “Arc Attackmusic” destroy an empty soda can with an electromagnet. Some might say it is a over kill but it is one cool video to watch!
The aluminum can sits inside a thick coil of wire. The trio then sends an electrical current through wire, which creates the electromagnet. In turn, the electromagnet dramatically rips the can apart with a loud bang and quite a few sparks. Video made by Phantom high speed camera, capturing the impressive explosion at 11,000 frames per second.
