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).

Roman Gamer: How do you f****ng balance the balls

Gopal Teaches: She can experiment with my balls all day long

Jinger Partin: HOW DO YOU EVE-

Speedbun: Just launch rockets into space like this!

افوكادو avokado: بنت كلب او بنت فيزياء

lucamex: You cannot be real

Superfishman 32: That is essentially what we do with rocket stages. The bigger engines on the bottom go less than a quarter of the total distance, when they separate from the rocket. Even if you have the exact same engines on all the stages.

607: I'm sorry, but I'm not interested in the supernova thing. :P

eirik storvik: What if you put the basketball on top?

Ned Amidy: this chick is boomen

Saktuscactus: Physics girl! Why aren't you using the metric system?

WST kevin: very interesting :o

Earth Man: Cool

Multi Bomb: So no one is gonna talk about the fact that in the thumbnail there are 4 balls?

abdullah gharrash: idk how she's pretty and smart at the same time !

Oro: yee

JacksMacintosh: Wooaahhh this is OG

AdeptPr0t0type: pls post more i love your content!

neigh neigh: wuda been nice to see what happend to the golf ball when it hit the ground again

Daniel focused: Quisiera hacer una investigacion de fisica sobre caida libre de dos pelotas la de basket y tenis juntas. Me podrían dar las alturas de caida inicial y la altura a la que llega la pelota de tenis despues del choque. Adifrentes alturas de caida iniclal diferntes alturas despues del choqe.
