Liquidized Sand Machine

SUBSCRIBE!: https://www.youtube.com/nickipedia SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/A7slq3f2lJU Science Team! This is one of the strangest science-phenomenon I’ve ever worked with! Liquidized sand is so strange. It’s nothing more than a fluid (nitrogen gas in our case) forced into a solid (like sand) resulting is the solid acting like a fluid! This video was inspired by Mark Rober’s new video Liquid Sand Hot Tub: https://youtu.be/My4RA5I0FKs I highly recommend you check out that video and his channel, he’s got some really cool videos! For our build we used the following 1. ¾ inch red type copper pipe 2. T type nitrogen cylinder 3. Glass beads from Grainger 4. Plastic container from Home Depot (ours was about 2 feet long, 1 ft deep, 1 ft wide) 5. Noshok needle valve ¼ NPT M-F 6. 580 adapter (for nitrogen cylinder) 7. Brass fittings (all ¾) from Home Depot to fit 580 adapter to needle valve to brass nipple (the thing that goes in the clear tubing) Music: Intro: Evan_Schaeffer_-_05_-_Portal Evan_Schaeffer_-_02_-_Bright_Side Evan_Schaeffer_-_17_-_Bounce Evan_Schaeffer_-_19_-_Big_Splash Ryan_Andersen_-_06_-_Think_About_It Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Nickipedia Website: http://www.NickipediaLive.com Production Team: Writer/Producer: Nick Uhas

Nick = I saw u on AGT. You did great! I think Simon was in a bad mood on the 2nd round and you shouldn't have gotten buzzed. I love your videos and am probably your BIGGEST fan.
Nick Uhas (4 months ago)
Thank you so much!! I’ll admit, hearing that buzzer really distracted me...always so much easier to make a great science show when you know the judges are on your side!!

Can it polish/clean metals?
Mindblower 21 (5 months ago)
i love science but i'm more of a quantom physicist which is super confusing for some people. this dude kinda encourages me. he works so hard and gets so little credit
Aryan Mehta (5 months ago)
Would that destroy electronics like other liquids?
CookiePanda _ (3 months ago)
Aryan Mehta well sand can destroy electronics.

isn't nitrogen really cold?
Sam Pound (3 months ago)
King not as a gas

Let's throw a alarm clock in (gasp) brilliant

When you drop sand into it, it even rebounds the sand droplet like water!

At 3:50 the glass beads refracts the light into a rainbow

Can this be used for polishing metals?
Nick Uhas (5 months ago)
I think that's actually what the glass beads are for, but they have to be shot out of an air gun. The method wouldn't have enough force to take paint off of an object.

You could probably make a death trap with this
trolle02 (25 days ago)
Yea. And use the foam to put in their mouth so they die.
Nick Uhas (5 months ago)
The most expensive mouse trap in the world!

Can you even chopsaw metal?
Nick Uhas (5 months ago)
sure can, the hardware sells bladed made for non-ferrous metal (metal without iron)... this one was expensive but does the trick! Most carbide blades with 60 teeth or more will cut copper no problem
Likith Magnet (5 months ago)
Brilliant! At 3:51 we can see rainbow formed due to glass beads!
Nick Uhas (5 months ago)
right!!! it's from the glass beads... they're basically little tiny marbles

Can u just use oxygen from a air compressor if I can’t get nitrogen
Nick Uhas (5 months ago)
It is possible but the amount of compressed air that flows continuously is pretty small, you would need either a smaller plastic container or a large air compressor!
erin chavis (5 months ago)
this channel is so underrated it makes me sad
Nick Uhas (5 months ago)
We're gonna get more subs so we can do bigger things... my promise to you!

"ah hell yeah" -my exact reaction when I saw this notification

We feel the same ; )
Freizeitflugsphäre (5 months ago)
Whats that cool intro song called???😁 Great video idea! Wonder if this is also possible with hydrogen so you can light it up. I found out that the sand acts like a kind of flashback-arrestor for the hydrogen flames.
Freizeitflugsphäre (5 months ago)
Nick Uhas THX!
Nick Uhas (5 months ago)
Hey! so the intro song is: "portal" by Evan Schaeffer
Nick Uhas (5 months ago)
I will put the list of the songs in the description! That's an awesome, question and I think it might be worth testing out!
Kapitan Borys (5 months ago)
Yes finally a vid about it from you
Nick Uhas (5 months ago)
yea! this was also a comment suggestion (along with Mark Rober's build) super cool stuff

Can u make liquid helium and use the quantum vortices
Bobz452 (5 months ago)
CamMan58 Vlogs Sounds very scientific
Nick Uhas (5 months ago)
I shall look into it : )
