Pyro Board: 2D Rubens' Tube!

  • Added:  3 years ago
  • Standing waves of fire!
    Check out Audible:
    Fysikshow: - I'm hosting Michio Kaku in Melbourne ONLY:

    Rubens' Tube is an awesome demo and here we take it to the next level with a two-dimensional 'Pyro Board'. This shows unique standing wave patters of sound in the box.

    The pressure variations due to the sound waves affect the flow rate of flammable gas from the holes in the Pyro Board and therefore affect the height and colour of flames. This is interesting for visualizing standing wave patterns and simply awesome to watch when put to music. Thank you to Sune Nielsen and everyone at Aarhus for sharing this demonstration with me! And thanks for having me at your conference.

    Music by Kevin MacLeod, "Ice Flow"

    I think you can hear it because you're not inside the 'waveguide' and the standing wave is only there. Where you're listening is as the free space to what inside the waveguide and there's not standing waves.

    it would've been so much more cooler if not for the yellow flame.. if we could just remove that sooty flame and have real crispy blue ones then this device would really demonstrate waves like nothing else

    somewhere in the middle of the music demonstration the flame started to swirl the only about 8 of the way around the square and it was in between the two access points of the Pyro board. I watch that part more than 5 times by now and it seems to be what happens when too high and low notes switch very quickly, but I would like some one else's opinion.

    The appearance of the pyro-board notably from 2:13 to :2:21 looks a lot like depictions I've seen of a quantum field. Since you're looking at sound waves pushed through pin holes, could those holes be used to represent how a wave can appear like a particle?
