Loudspeaker Makes Water Bend At Crazy Zig-Zag Angles


This science experiment will make you see water in a whole new way! Sound waves make the water bend and a synchronized camera lets you see the fluid behave in mind-blowing ways.

This is a really fun project and when you first see the results, chances are your jaw will drop. The main thing to keep in mind for this project is that you need a camera that shoots 24 fps.

The effect that you are seeing can’t be seen with the naked eye. The effect only works through the camera. However, there is a version of the project you can do where the effect would be visible with the naked eye.


For that project, you’d have to use a strobe light.It works by setting the camera’s frame rate to match the speed of the vibration from the speaker (in this case, 24fps). The effect can’t be seen with your eyes alone—only through the lens of a camera.
