I am 73 years old. 55 years ago I took physics 101 and got an "A" but this is the first time in my life that I have really understood centripetal force and the Coriolis effect in my life. Thanks Michael!
people really cant take a joke, can they?
@Jul W lol
@我喜欢 Cringe kid. Grow up
It's impressive how Michael is able to cut out such a perfect circular cardboard disc
Thats not a disc, thats a 3 dimensional chiliagon
this guy has clearly never heard of scissors
That'll be the next video lol
Literally on like 1/3 of the vids I click on you’re here. Where aren’t you?
"Lesson 5... This truly was a roundabout path.. Thank you, Gyro..."
Im imagining vsauce trying to beat the algorithm(pres) with this video (super spin)
drip chad bruh
WAIT I WASNT THE ONLY PERSON THAT THOUGHT THIS?
lmao i played n the jojo game yesterday on a private server (which i havent played in 5 months) and the moment i saw lesson 5 i was like "johnny" also i cant believe thats the joke LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Jokes aside, can we take a moment to appreciate how kind he is doing this for Alzheimer's research
@EctoMorpheus specificity is important, "dementia" encompasses Alzheimer's but also describes many more conditions
@Sinister just changed it :)
ITH ALZTHEIMERS REATHERCH IDIOTH
why not jokes on side?
"This is a cardboard disk, I cut it myself" Good job Michael Good job
That address is from Breaking Bad.
@Striker Bowls please send me a gift. anything is appreciated

I’m living in Spain, but the “A” is silent
That's a good trick.
i live in a spain, but the "i" is silent
VSauce, why do we always wake up right before the best part in our dreams?
Your dreaming starts when you enter REM sleep, last part of the sleeping span which your body softly starts to activate your consciousness obviously starts from your brain and your eyes starts moving and you start to imagine, when the imagination is horror panic attacks force you to wake up faster than usual because of natural reflex to evade the bad ending however when your imagination are sweet you usually postpone the ending ending due to stay longer in sweet dream but REM Sleep have it's time span and unfortunately the answer to your question is times up while you postpone the end because you Don't wanted it to end.😊
Probably because too much emotions which makes us wake up, like when somebody wakes you up by yelling, but inside of your own brain.
i heard it’s cuz u get excited enough for it to wake u up
@Aaron Stevens no I just don’t try super hard to spell check and proof read every comment. It’s a Clip-Share comment dude get over yourself.
@ISitOn MyArm did you misspell "you'll" on purpose?..
I wanted to learn Gyro's spin with steel balls. Worth it!
When wheel was spinning and he flinched not wanting to die from a tire hitting him going like mach 10 was so friggin hilarious
I love this guy
He didnt flinch, it was for comedic effect.
I know. It was hyperbole x 1000
That's definitely not mach 10
As someone who was initially baffled by the concepts of the recent College Physics chapter, this has proven insanely helpful. Thank you!
I have a doctorate degree in the sciences (not physics) and I still struggle to understand these concepts. What keeps me coming back to Vsauce over and over is Michael’s ability to inspire me to keep trying to understand. Thanks Vsauce. You have enriched my life.
I feel like JoJo was actually created as bait to get people into deep scientific rabbit holes.
@Memes shorts popular show series that has a lot of reference-ability
@Jim the author Araki has hidden many references in the series, mostly to western music
I feel like the jojo was invented by folks who was in a deep theoretical rabbit whole :D
@Memes shorts Popular Japanese manga/anime series that has one of the powers called "spin" where you spin steel balls mostly (there is also a character named "Gyro").
I suddenly have a great urge to buy a gyroscope
You and I are not so different.
Bro this was 5 years ago
@The Big Cheese is it here yet
Necro kudos! An explanation of the gyro effect that makes sense. This brings something to mind that has concerned me for some time. Somebody might use a kernel of information in an unexpected way, if only they knew about it. How do you keep up? Keep learning and seeking. Thanks Michael.
Vsauce: This head aint' never coming off!
Guillotine: Am I a joke to you?
"yes, because im made out of Vsauce"
They aren't used anymore most are now in museums.
I deadass thought he would say "or is it?" after that
I really like the way this was explained step by step with visuals, rather than just having us plug numbers into formulas
Hi Michael , I just recently discovered your channel and I must say that I’m blown away with your broad range of topics. The knowledge you possess relating to these topics is mind blowing, how do you know so much and the way you articulate with your dry innocent humour is refreshing to a tired soul . You are the most intelligent and awesome person I don’t know and I truly wish I didn’t know more people like you . Looking forward to your next video. PS : That video about the rotating seal mug looked more like a bungholio , it was genius . Thank You .
I love you, Micheal! I couldn't stop laughing throughout this video because of the non-intuitive nature of rotational mechanics. This was totally mind-blowing!
The Coriolis Effect is my personal favorite QED with flat-earthers, because it's not some abstract thing. You can literally go out in the desert with a rifle and watch as your bullets land in different places depending on which direction you're shooting.
ShoeniceDeletedVideosX28 I knew someone would say something like that, didn't think I needed to explain what I meant.
Different places on the target relative to your initial zero.
Vsauce Holy crap you actually replied to me
月食 but if earth was flat and spinning the coriolis effect would also exist, since points nearer to the center are also spinning slower
The Coriolus effect doesn't happen to work on small scale gravitational forces does it? Or is it 100% outweighed by stronger forces?
Michael is truly a gift to us all. Sorry for my bad spelling, but I am happy to have you in my life. Honestly. The way you explain stuff is so chaotic, energetic but yet so good.
Me: ok normal video
Also Micheal: do you want my head delivered to you in a box?
So still a normal video?
Still normal after he said that. I don’t think you know what it means
Domotron 35 *Or is it*
He doesnt understand a "normal video"
What makes this stuff so great is that Vsauce doesn't OVER explain things. They focus on the simple straightforward explanation and repeat it a couple times. Reenforcing it. Pushing you to that "aha" moment. That's why it's better to keep explanations short and to the point. Instead of going on and on and on and on and on and on and on until the person is like "what was this person talking about?"
Micheal, you have the gift. I don't think there is any topic that you couldn't take on and end up creating a compelling story through which to communicate the most important aspects of said topic to the broadest audience one can imagine. In short, you are an incredibly interesting and captivating person who could not just convince an Inuit that he needed a surfboard, you would create within his soul the ability to understand every aspect of surfing and the ability to extrapolate all of his to very limits of human capacity to understand the universe they inhabit.
After many years studying this topics, and after years watching Vsauce, this continues to be the BEST EXPLANATION I've came across.
Hail Michael!! Huge thanks!
We're so lucky. Getting cool lessons from the greatest teachers of our species while drunk in your underwear.
Gyro gives better lessons hehe
Or you could have gone to science class when you were 14. You'd have already learned all this basic crap.
Peter Parker what are you doing in my underwear
Man, you're really clairvoyant person.
Things like QM or Relativity are fascinating for sure but when Newtonian mechanics blows your mind, it is a different feeling.
Michel... Hope you gonna read this humble message. Keep in mind (you're a genius) and NEVER CHANGE your way about making the videos. They are just simply AMAZING in the way they are, and I would prefer to watch them over 30 years as well in the same pattern like now. And should be always (thanks for make them) 👍
I actually heard about helicopter rotors (and gyroscopes in general) "feeling" forces 90 degrees after the force was applied a while back and was very confused. Turns out I already knew why that happens, from doing orbital maneuvers in ksp. I just never thought about connecting the dots between orbital mechanics and helicopters.
I love physics.
Now I want to see how flat earthers explain a Gyro Scope
@Clayton Reeves 🤷♀️
An entire year later and they've got nothin'
Amazing! First time I have heard a somewhat intuitive explanation for the “90 degrees ahead effect”
Is it just me or are the thumbnails low-key modern art?
yea, especially the "Juvenoia" one.
This is one of the most efficient educational videos on Clip-Share. Afer learning physics in school and university (not my main subject) I had to turn 40 to finally understand precession.
I have now learned that vsauce videos aren't to be clicked for the title of thumbnail, they just are all good and I'm never disappointed
The kind of "clickbait" you WANT to see...
I've known the Coriolis effect affects ballistics for a little while, but I never really grasped the concept. I'm gonna have to rewatch this because I suspect the Eötvös effect has an affect on a projectile as well.
I was just learning about this in my college physics class, and most of it went right over my head... then I watched Michael explain it and was like, “OOOOOHHHHH! I SEE!”
Very nice...You are one of the few rare people who explain physics like physics...Everyone else explains physics like mathematics.
I never understood why gyroscopes don't fall over, even though I've watched quite a few videos on it, but Michael explained it in a simple non-confusing way so I understand it now! Good job Michael.
yep he has a way of teaching things
Great work here. So much better than school teaching. there could be a real curriculum developed out of your videos. thanks for teaching!!!
Gyroscope! I loved these things as a child. The box is exactly the same too. Awesome little things. Pretty trippy to see it spinning down a tiny string too. Btw mind dynamite is a great little phrase lol. I'm totally stealing it 😂
Thank you for making physics fun and easier to understand
Michael, I would love to see you experiment with Viktor Schauberger's designs for purifying water. I can't seem to find much about this and would love to learn more. If I had the funding I would be all over it.
I’ve watched this video like 4 times in the past week. It’s related to what we’re doing in physics . So handy
I like that Vsauce has a bunch of things to promote now. It might mean new videos more often.
Just started watching this dude's videos one after another...the guy's a genius. Great stuff.
It’s also the same thing with helicopter rotors. I saw a video similar to this a few years back and all the years of “you explained that it does but not the why” were so simply answered.
I had to learn about the coriolis effect for flight school. It never made sense, your explanation was fantastic
The rewatch ability of Michael's content is amazing
It's always a treat to have a foreigner pronounce Hungarian stuff correctly :) The way you said "Eötvös" was spot on.
Vsauce is like the Alton Brown of physics.
Only less corny
Mr. Snuffleupagus so true
I love this show this guy is great explains what I know n can't express n also teaches me to helping me reach a better understanding
12:40 This is an incredible way to intuit the Coreolis Effect. I never quite pictured it before. Thanks!
Michael's Vsauce videos are always so nostalgic
That wheel tire demonstration will never not be awesome
Been on Clip-Share for hours trying to grasp this you’ve done it in 11 minutes thank you!
By far and away the best explanation I've ever seen of rotational dynamics. Very clever how you did it without transforming between reference frames, and i think that's what made it such a clear explanation. Although I won't dispute that the centrifugal force (and the coriolis force) are fictitious, they are extremely useful tools when working with rotating frames!
in what way are they fictitious?
As a hungarian, I'm very pleased to hear you talking about Eötvös. :)
He was a great physicist. One of the largest universities in my country, the ELTE (Eötvös Loránd University) is named after him.
You are really the best Science communicator of this generation and most likely beyond.
"When a car urine.."
Ah, yes, intellectual captions
@Neil Lunavat but he moved his hand down from up so..?
Well, gravity does come from God?
@Motaz Fawzi @Neil Lunavat he was signalling the opposing force
Vsauce is in Australia confirmed.
@Neil Lunavat Which way is down?
Hi Michael. After seeing your description on the ball around your head; I am curious about why a person in a hammer throw and discus, spin in circles prior to letting go.
The fact that a guy that just talks about weird cool information is one of the most known people on Clip-Share is one thing that makes me love this platform.
"Mom! Vsauce broke my mind again!"
But what is mind?
VSAUCE MINDBREAK HERE
Or did he? *cue vsauce music*
*Vsauce music starts playing*
Is Mind Actually Flat?
The part where you talk about if you blow on one side of a gyroscope, it tilts 90 degrees offset. That is also why a helicopter rotors does not make the input on the left blade to tilt right, but actually the input changes the pitch on the blade 90 degrees offset of the blade that would "logically" be the correct blade to pitch.
How can Michael balance the carboard so good on a pen and spin it without it falling off
When the gyroscope tilts at 9:38 because of gravity creating a torque on it, The gyroscope behaves the same way an AC MOTOR does. Like in an ACMotor With each coil being energized at different times to rotate magnets , the same principle can be applied with the gyroscope with gravity, the gravity pushing on different ends of the gyro which in turn creates a consistency to keep the gyro moving .
I know this video is old but its awesome because helicopters have to take gyroscopic precession (sorry for spelling) into account. They have to offset the main input controls 45° on the "rotor" so that they can translate back to the side of the helicopter they want
this is a pure mechanics lesson,and you're doing better than my professor
It's funny how I just learned this in physics. I feel as smart as Vsauce for once
Asa Goldsmith True
ayy AP physics 1
Arthur Drake Yeah
same. AP Physics?
Don't think I've ever mashed the J-key so often, but I've finally got my head around this. Many thanks for all your excellent explanations.
what is the j key
If you could remove friction would the gyroscope keep spinning forever due to conservation of angular momentum? Would it in the simplest case of the axis oriented vertically just maintain that orientation forever? And would the precessing, frictionless gyroscope keep precessing forever? Or are the other forces that come into play to slow the gyro down?
From what I have observed the gyroscope (or in my case a bicycle wheel) wants to flip just like a wing nut wants to flip when it's spinning in space, but the orbital speed causes it to, instead rotate on the Y axis.
I have a question about the Eötvös effect. Does the Eötvös effect make it more fuel efficient to travel east than to travel west? I.E. you start a trip in Kansas City, Kansas and travel east St. Louis Missouri then turn around and travel west back to KC. Would you see any difference in the amount of fuel you used going east versus going west? Or is the difference so small that you wouldn't see it on any normal fuel gauge?
The 90 degrees ahead part of the explanation could be a little more helpful, by using a compass or clock to show it and not the 2D side shot they did. If you look directly down at a gyro, use compass directions (N, S, E, W). Lets pretend its spinning clockwise and you then apply a force to the North point, 90 degrees clockwise would be East. So the gyro will tilt that way. Just like in the first cardboard example @7:47
Ok so basically A level physics was just explained in minutes
Sammy197 I've never met anyone with my name (irl or online)
Sammy OMG you stole my username! (and many other Sammys' too) When you think about it it's kinda rare for people to find their username "thief" so it just goes to show how small of a world we live in...
tihamir299 Sixth form is college. Same thing, it's just sixth form is generally referred to as a college connected to a lower school
BurpYoshi A-levels is what you study at sixth form, which is year 12 and year 13.
@NotBothered10 A-levels aren't high school, they're college.
Amazing analogy, the one related to orbital mechanics, thanks! :D
Could you do a show on the Gravity Probe B experiment? I am fascinated by it! Thanks!
So if the gyroscope was at a let's say 45 degree angle and you somehow got it to speed up, would it go back to being straight up or would it still spin at that 45 degree angle?
Great explanation- I grasped many concepts, that I barely knew.
This video taught me this topic better than a science class ever could have and is actually understand it
I love how impressed he is with him self when he says "here is a circle...I cut it out myself"
basically, when something is spinning, all of its "points" already have strong motion vectors. if gravity is applied, gravity's motion vector is only added to the existing vectors (it doesn't replace them), and they might be a lot bigger than gravity if the object is spinning very fast, meaning the vectors just turn downwards a little bit.
either michael is a wizard or something else is happening... *how did he balance a cardboard circle on a pen*
"Do you want my head delivered to your door in a box?"
"WELL TOO BAD"
"Why did my doorbell just ring?"
I read in my book centripetal force is real and centrifugal is imaginary and for the life of me could not understand why, thanks Michael
This video taught me more than a full year of my last science class
You are really a good popularizer of science effects.
Continue like this.
Dilem Yvan loistava
One of the greatest VSauce videos of all time.
hi vsource, can you explain, is it possible for an object (circular) to rotate at a very very fast rotation speed resulting in the object actually silent. because each point of the object is at the limit of the singularity of space and time ... TiA
Very interesting about the Eötvös Effect. I wonder if this plays a part in our 'sudden diversionary tendencies'. It could play a role in our decision to divert to something we equally desire. Like I'm on my way to grab tacos, no idea that I was walking East in that direction, when suddenly I see Pizza shop which I tend to desire or favor somewhat equally to Tacos when without sny kind of prodding I suddenly divert a little to instead to end up at the Pizza shop to eat Pizza instead. Sometimes you wonder what made you end up eating pizza when you were determined to eat tacos. Never knowing that Eötvös had that effect on you. Eötvös made me do it. That lightness you felt that made you tip over to the "other" of equal desire. And not knowing anything that's really going on. I wonder.
great explanation, thanks, I learned a lot from your video
THANK YOU for not glossing over WHY force and torque are perpendicular to rotation. Never made sense to me until today bless you!
You feel so smart when you understand a vsauce video
I learned alot of this in high school physics, fun stuff :)
Imagine someone popping out of nowhere and asking you "Do you want my head delivered to your door in a box?"
Props to whoever can spin a ball and rope in a perfect circle!
Vsauce Michael: "But what IS spinning?"
Vinesauce Vinny: "SPeEeEeEeEeEeEeEeN!"
These explanations are so good.
If spinning things are so stable, why is my life fragile, unstable _and_ spinning out of control? HEY, MICHAEL?!
That's because you are not a string, a disk or a sphere
I swear this guy has so much knowledge he can take like 30 brain cells out of his brain and still be this smart
Imagine this video is your first introduction to VSauce and Michael just comes right out with “Do you want my head in a box?”
Vsauce: but hey, that's just a force, a centripetal force
Vsauce physics theory, alternative universe
Oh so we enter quantum mechanics now
I read this as he said it
