i like how the camera shakes like it was some giant explosion

i remember the time where this one the Highest rated GIF on funnyjunk.

Wasn't that DavemasteR who posted that?

Thank you! I've been looking for this.

People ask what the use of this is in science?   
   
A friend of mine studies fluid dynamics at MIT as a student (I live in Massachusetts).  She studies fluid dynamics in labs like this, and has explained to me that we really do not understand how airflow and water interact with their surroundings, and that our computer programs can only crudely model them.   
   
So in other words, studying things like this will allow us to improve aerodynamics in vehicles, make energy production more efficient, and so on.   
   
Just some food for thought.  Interesting stuff.

What you said is true in general. But this experiment is really just a cool byproduct of Helmholt'z theorems regarding rotational flow in irrotational fluid.

A better understanding of fluid dynamics can lead to better efficiency in any system which relies on fluid motion through pipes or ducts to operate. The knowledge can also be used to design more accurate small scale experiments and models for design of buildings, cars, boats, planes, piping systems, etc.

I love Science, but what would be the usefulness of this? (What's the point in this one?)   
Or is it "Just for fun" Science?

At first I was none too pleased, but then I saw you gave me credit.

Ah, very interesting:D thanks for that

no problem :D

i find beauty in science. people who are all religious im okay, hell i still am a christian, but science is the thing of biblical proportions. we can make paralyzed people walk again blind men see, its beauty.

Agreed:)

It's throwing science at the wall to see what sticks.

the nature of science is to learn fun facts and apply them to practical inventions. This is probably about learning the nature of certain materials and how they interact with each other. Practical uses come after....

Cool reactions like this is the reason I study Chemistry
User avatar #67 to #65 - anonymousattorney (01/03/2013) [-]
But...this would be classified under Physics...right? I mean, it's two forces acting upon two separate groups of matter, pushing them together. The 'explosion' would be said groups coming into contact with one another.
#79 to #67 - anon (01/03/2013) [-]
Indeed. The phenomenon shown does not have anything to do with chemistry. Dobby i suggest you change your subject :P
User avatar #75 to #67 - withersinsss (01/03/2013) [-]
Physics still plays a big part in chemistry, I believe.
User avatar #82 to #75 - anonymousattorney (01/03/2013) [-]
Well, I suppose if you're referring to kinetic energy. Not sure what else would, though.
#97 to #82 - dobbyisafreeelf (01/07/2013) [-]
We get to mix many different gases like this in chemistry. The way that they react when they are mixed in order to create the reaction is what we study.
Yes it is more physics based but there is chemistry in there, plus we get to blow things up

I know some people will hate me for this in which I apologise for offending you but this is all I could think of.

Same here.
