Welcome


The title says it all: this blog features physics videos found everywhere on the web: animations, demonstrations, lectures, documentaries.
Please go here if you want to suggest other nice physics videos, and here if I mistakingly infringed your copyrights. If you understand French, you'll find a huge selection of physics videos in French in my other blog Vidéos de Physique.

Why Blowing in Bottles Makes Sound and Helmholtz Resonance

An explanation of why blowing in a bottle makes a sound, basically explaining how Helmholtz resonance works and how to bottles are Helmholtz resonators. The same explanation works for what role the speaker plays in moving objects/bottles using sound, the acoustic propulsion in one of my other videos below. This also explains a bit about resonant frequency and compares the sound wave compression and decompression to an oscillating spring, a simple harmonic oscillator.
