    Let's not have another football/soccer debate please.. also how good was the outro /10?

    I'd like to see this run again with a motor to induce the spin before allowing it to drop. That way, the same amount of energy can be put into the angular momentum of each. For example, it's a lot harder to spin a tennis ball, even though it's lighter, any faster than a baseball of similar size. I'm betting they were more closely matched on rotational speed than angular momentum.

    2020 Still best outro ever 😂

    After watching them for a while, it’s interesting to see a video from a year and a half ago to see how much they’ve changed. 😆

  • WickedWizard13

    you guys should test the effect on wiffle balls that has lots of holes so I bet the flight would be amazing

    i think the magnus effect would work better on a bowling ball, also the whistle should be awesome

    So I'm assuming these videos were all shot on the same trip and you haven't gone to Switzerland multiple times, but I'm curious... did you do them all on the same day? And if not, did that mean you had to get permission multiple times to throw stuff off the top of of the dam? :P

    Do a front spin so it comes back and bounces off the wall repeatedly!

  • 0MindSwept0

    Dam, the distance gained by adding a backspin was balls

    I love the spontaneity of your outros, they make the videos come across as quite natural.

    Do a smooth object so we can see if the ridges on the surface of balls create the effect or accentuate the effect.

    You guys are hilarious!😁

    Make a simple 'c-frame' of wood with a hand drill with some sort of cup on the side of the ball to spin a ball to a high RPM, this would be one end of the c-frame shape. On the other end of the c-frame put, a simple spring loaded cup to push the ball into the drill cup. When at speed, pull the drill away (against a simple spring to keep tension, (making the c shape wider to release the ball) and you can release the ball with just spin and no other forces involved. Now you can control spin and see what balls will do at various speeds, and see just how far you can make the Magnus effect make a ball 'fly'. Wonder what a 2,000 rpm ball might fly like? If you need a drawing, let me know and I'll send one to you for explanation.

    You should try the Magnus effect on a ball filled with water
