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.

    So why is it that when something spins really fast, it appears to change the direction it is spinning for a second, then goes back to what it was at

    5:07 That sounded like a warp drive spooling up and then jumping to FTL. Only the high-pitched sound of the motor kinda breaks it in the end.

    I was going to admonish you for destroying this fine album. Seemed to be in pristine shape. Then I looked it up. Even THEY didn't care about this record when it was committed to vinyl. (no artists, no credits, no nuthin). Good choice.

    Wow, i did some mathematics and: Fcp = m.v²/R
    Mass of a LP its about 120 grams; 0,12Kg
    The velocity 12,500fps; 3810m/s
    The radius of the LP 15cm; 0,15m
    Fcp = 0,12.(3810)²/0,15
    Fcp = 116.128,8 N (Newtons)
    That's a lot! if i did something wrong, please forgive me, i'm just a student.

    It shakes like that because of resonance. It is spinning at a very specific speed which move the particles at a certain frequency. This causes the wave effect seen at 9:45.
    For another example of destructive resonant frequency, check out: tvclip.biz/video/XggxeuFDaDU/video.html

    You're not using the rattle cans correctly. Everyone knows you're supposed to keep shaking the can until the rattling stops. That's how you know it's fully mixed. Ask any apprentice.

    Really gives you a look at how fast LIGHT really is. I mean the sparkles coming off the shattered pieces as they're in the air instant flash and hit the camera lens almost as if it wasn't even in slow motion. Insane.

    Want to see something fun ? Paint a record with chrome paint place it on a perfectly level turn table and shine a light just slightly above the edge and watch the shadow on the opposite wall, you can measure exactly how much it warps. When we used to make 15 inch hard disks for cputers this is how we measured how flat the disks were.....

    Very thankful to see that you put a lot of repetitions for the last disc. If you didn’t I would. So thank u very much. Other thing is that: what if you paint it like u did and and little squares from 2x2 cm each on the whole disc?

    • Gregory Schift
      Gregory Schift 7 days ago

      It’s like adding coordinates to the disc. So it’s not just more visual: it’s more measurable.

    I love your videos. Nothing better than destroying things !!!
    However, you've GOT to stop using "eviscerated" when something completely disintegrates. To eviscerate is to disembowel it ... to gut it. Disintegration and evisceration are two different actions.
