Fun Practical Applications of Physics

Here’s a fun video of some physics-based tricks. (Called 10 Amazing Bets you will Always Win, by Quirkology)

A couple of them (moving liquid from a bottle to a glass and separating two glasses) use air pressure creatively.

Physics can also be used to make some super-cool art.  Have you seen the Cloud Gate in Chicago?  On the outside it’s an amazing panorama of the city skyline, on the inside it’s a crazy multidimensional universe. That’s the magic of curved mirrors.  

Vsauce on YouTube has a really interesting video about curved mirrors.
