Stacked Ball Drop

What happens when you drop a perfectly balanced stack of balls? And how is the result like a supernova? The classic momentum transfer demonstration, taken to the next level. A big thank you to my nephews and niece Drew, Max and Whitney for creating the trampoline footage! Thank you to the Vlogbrothers for sponsoring this video, to Kyle Kitzmiller for filming, and to Island School on Kauai for providing the balls (ischool.org).

Daniel Huesmann: damn, I should work in the garden right now

William Victor: Now, that's a great video. Excellently produced and explained. Big Bang, expanding universe theory; so many applications. Very nice.

aizaleeh sagandingan: i wish i can get all the balls...

Don Palmer: For the first time in my life I actually listened to what a woman had to say.

Samantha Knepp: I would just like to tell you that I absolutely love your videos! I use them all the time in my classroom!!!

InDstructR: 1:14 that's how I broke my leg xD

Papai Pal: I tried this but my neighbor got hurt. Too much velocity on the third ball..... Had it been faster, it could have penetrated through his body.

Which technically means, another Black Hole.

I solved this problem some days ago and then found this video!

The Flametroopers: How do you stack the balls?

Max Hum: using a zk pro outside... so sad

Aryadwika Dinu: Try do to 48 balls

Ethan Shohet: I would smash

RJ D.: how do you manage to stack three balls on top of each other

ExpertCMX: She makes me hard

physics matters: see my channel

physics matters: good

doughboy2448: just dont take the golf ball to your face. my sister lost her front teeth while she was playing with a golf ball on pavement by chucking it at the ground and bouncing it into the sky. im guessing she reached similar heights so similar velocities of the ball.

King Carterico: I’m gonna drop some balls then tell you how that relates to supernovas! Oh, ok.

eee ttt: spacex learning

Keelos Chard: Those double jumps on the tramp....... were not double jumps
