Spinning a Record to Pieces at 12,500fps - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published on Jun 2, 2018
  • Gav and Dan take 1 piece of vinyl and spin it so fast it becomes about 50,000 pieces of vinyl. The results are obviously captured by a very high speed camera.
    Thanks to Vision Research for lending the Phantom v2640.

    Apparently, if you inject superglue into a borax/water solution it immediately hardens, like if you poured liquid wax or plastic into cold water.

    So you mentioned that the record was going slower and that the motor must be using energy elsewhere, the most interesting part is where the energy is going. All of that motor's lost energy is going towards wobbling the record. Its not in weight or inertia, its not in air resistance, its forcing the record to resonate outside of its resonant frequency costing a lot of power. Thats why you don't see a standing wave as it rotates, and as a non-elastic media (pun certainly not intended) the record is taking that energy, turning it into heat and then would be dissipating it into the air.
    In anticipation to the questions, no this isn't a random guess, yes it is absolutely what is happening. As a physicist I found it pretty awesome to note and I'd imagine a lot of other people might also find it interesting, cool, or educational. A few more less cool but equally interesting aspects, the wibble wobble on the top wood cover is a perfect sine wave. I can't think of anything which doesn't resonate in a sine wave so that isn't surprising but again might be interesting and educational (quantum phenomena are outside the scope, but will also resonate as a sine wave eg. phonons just with many, many exceptions eg. electron shells).
    As an assumption, the record is likely breaking as it nears its resonant frequency. Someone with more care than myself could check this by seeing if the standing wave rotates around the record at a reduced RPM as it nears breaking point, thus closing towards resonant frequency. This then means the record is dissipating less of the energy from the motor, is then wobbling back and forth laterally further, and gets beyond the point at which the medium can withstand an thus snaps. This is identical to the stereotypical opera singer breaking glass with the right note.
