Enthiusiastic Scientist Dude Plays With Terminator Metal3m22s

Enthiusiastic Scientist Dude Plays With Terminator Metal

After seeing a GIF online from a guy squirting molten gallium into a pool of what looked like water in a shallow dish, Kevin Kohler wanted to try it out for himself. In the GIF, they would squirt the liquid metal from a syringe and it would form tiny spheres that after a little bouncing all over the place, would gather back together into one big ball. Kevin tried it at home, but the gallium would just form a blob in the dish, not doing much. After finding the original video, it turned out that the colorless liquid in the dish was actually sulfuric acid instead of just plain H2O. What is going on is, normally gallium has a very low surface tension, but when you add it to sulfuric acid, a thin skin of gallium sulfate is formed on the surface of the metal, which has a much higher surface tension that the pure metal. That higher surface tension is what pulls the metal back into a sphere. Gallium isn't the only liquid metal plaything that the Backyard Scientist has used in his career. Kevin once tried to do the bottle flip challenge, but instead of filling a bottle with water, he filled it with mercury, making it a mercury bottle flip challenge. Do not try that it home!

Breaking into a massive 1000lb Safe with a Plasma Cutter7m37s

Breaking into a massive 1000lb Safe with a Plasma Cutter

Kevin Kohler, a.k.a. The Backyard Scientist, strikes again. His latest toy – a plasma cutter. Plasma cutting is a process that cuts through electrically conductive materials by means of an accelerated jet of hot plasma. Typical materials cut with a plasma torch include steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and copper, although other conductive metals may be cut as well. The machine uses air to push the plasma further through the material, resulting in a cut. As all good scientists go, Kevin starts by attempting to cut something that is non conductive, like a watermelon. The plasma only burns the rind from the outside and barely makes a hole. That wasn't a challenge enough for our Backyard Scientist, so next stop is to see what would happen if you ACCIDENTALLY burn yourself with the plasma gun. The plasma from the gun burns straight through a piece of steak, which means that you will probably need a big bandage in case you forget to put your gloves on. The this walls of the small apartment-size safe was no match for the plasma, so the real challenger comes from a jeweler's safe, weighing at almost 1000lb! The plasma cuts through the thick back wall in about 10 minutes, leaving the concrete padding to be crushed and the insides revealed. Unfortunately for Kevin, the previous owner emptied the entire vault, leaving only one copper penny from the 70s. What ever the booty was, this was one entertaining video!
