Aloha YouTubers, I am The Backyard Scientist! I like to make videos on all the crazy stuff I do. From exploding arrows, to making instruments, molten aluminum to science/chemistry experiments - I do it so you don't have to! I'm always thinking of more stuff to do, if you have an idea, id love to hear it! Almost everything I do can be considered dangerous!! If you insist on trying my videos at home, just remember- if you play with fire, you're going to get burned. Electricity is deadly. Be safe guys :) I love email from subscribers! You are free to share / upload my videos on social media (FB,Instagram,Twitter,etc...) Only if: - you do not run ads on the video or page it's played on (No websites or YT uploads) Reactions, using clips in YT videos is OK as long as it doesn't violate the spirit of FAIR USE. - you credit my YouTube channel AND tag the corresponding social media site. - you may not sell my videos or edits of videos under any circumstance. Anything else, email me.

The best way to make a fire tornado (in my opinion!) All you need are 2 glass half-cylinders. No moving parts, no fans, no squeaky bearings, just fire and forget!

6 Dangerous Ways to Cook an Egg

In this video I explore some crazy ways to cook an egg, and kind of go into the science behind it. Plus, its a great excuse to break out the flamethrower! Making a squirt gun flamethrower is very dangerous. I get a lot of emails asking advice on building a flamethrower: I can't stop you from doing it, so I will give you real advice below...... If you play with fire you will get burned, and expect/plan for the worst to happen - The gun catches fire and sprays you with flaming liquid. Squirt guns already leak with water, and...

Underwater Explosions - Slow Motion Dry Ice Bomb.

Underwater explosions using Dry Ice, and Liquid Nitrogen, and captured in high definition slow motion. Hey guys, Backyard Scientist here. I this video I throw water bottles filled with dry ice, and liquid nitrogen into my pool. This is seriously cool. The resulting explosions are earth-shaking powerful. I was curious to see what would happen to a human if they were underwater when this happened, so I fixed a couple balloons to a weight underwater. The explosion compresses the gas inside the balloon, in a similar way to how a depth charge affects a submarine. I read all my comments, but...

Deadly stink gas from Etch-A-Sketch?? (Hydrogen Sulfide!)

Today I teach you how to make Aluminum Sulfide, a chemical that releases Hydrogen Sulfide on contact with water. Its one of the smelliest compounds in the world, and you can make it with an Etch-A-Sketch and Sulfur! Plus you get to set stuff on fire to make it, aww yeah! I burned 100mmol (15g) of the mixture, and ended up with 8g of crude product. When I added it to water, I collected 200ml (~.25g, 8mmol) of Hydrogen Sulfide gas, thats only an 8% yield (3.4g, 2.45L theoretical yield). Pretty bad! Of course using a proper crucible, and pure...

Propane Rifle

Aloha fellow scientists! Have you ever seen anything so cool? So after watching NightHawkInLight's video I knew I had to do this. It was easy to do, all I needed was a TS8000 torch, and 10 feet of 7/8 tubing from the hardware store. Inspiration for this video NightHawkInLights video - The torch is self-igniting, meaning it has an electric sparker built in. When the button is pressed halfway, the torch mixes a perfect combination of propane and air into the tube. When the button is fully pressed the torch sparks sending a flame flying through the tube. I tried...

CO2 Cartridge powered Rocket Launcher!

Im going to show you how to make rockets using CO2 cartridges. These are used for Airsoft, Paintball, and BB guns. They contain high pressure Carbon Dioxide gas behind a thin metal disc. If you puncture the disc, the gas will escape and propel the rocket fast! Its not a replacement for black powder engines, but they can be just as fun, just watch where they land! Oh and try not to get blasted in the face like I did. I think I got dry ice in my sinus :( Krusty Krab song - I read all my comments, but...

Sending a GoPro to SPACE with the Cub-Scouts (High Altitude Balloon)

My friend Joe and Coyt invited me to come hangout and watch the cub scouts launch a high altitude balloon for their engineering pin. Greg, one of the pack leaders, designed a GPS receiver that transmits data over amateur radio frequencies. Amature radio frequencies have a very long range, so our signal was able to be picked up by any station within line-of-sight, even at 100,000 feet! Notes From Greg - Posted from comments for more visibility. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Greg Spiegel---- I have been asked for some specifics on the balloon and it's payload. The APRS tracker was from Byonics ( MT-1000...

Ping Pong ball filled with liquid nitrogen? Insane Speed!

I was on Reddit yesterday, and I saw a cool GIF on r/woahdude. It looked so cool I had to do it. Also people were debating on how fast the ball was really spinning, and I had to find out for myself so I grabbed my camera that can shoot up to 1000fps. The original poster estimated the speed at 10,000 rpm, but the ball was really spinning 30,000 rpm in my experiments!

Blue fire tornado: ‘Blue whirl’ could be the answer to cleaning up oil spills - TomoNews

COLLEGE PARK, MARYLAND — Researchers discover new “blue whirl” flame that they believe could be the key to cleaning up oil spills. The flame is a blue-colored fire tornado found by a team of researchers in the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland. Named the “blue whirl,” the tornado in controlled conditions could be the most efficient way to burn hydrocarbon fuel. Unlike yellow flames, a blue flame is a sign of a more complete, near-perfect burn with far fewer emissions. A fire tornado that burns in a blue-violet color has never been created before, but now researchers...

Molten Iron Vs. HUGE Magnet

Backyard Scientists T-Shirts! Limited Edition campaign, buy one now! - Have you ever wondered what happens when you bring a magnet near 5000 degree molten Iron? Does it attract? Or repel? Maybe it create cool shapes. But most importantly... DOES IT EXPLODE?! I set off thermite over a very large and expensive magnet to finally find out for myself what happens when molten metal meets a magnet. I learned that molten iron is not responsive to a magnetic field until it falls below 1400 fahrenheit, the curie temperature. By then it's solid! PS Check out my video on GoPro's channel! ↳ Add...

Pouring Molten Aluminum In a Watermelon. Awesome Surprise!

Facebook: Twitter: @ChemicalKevy Move over AntHillArt, theres a new guy in town! So today I decided I was going to pour molten aluminum on something. I just finished a new propane powered furnace and I wanted to put it to the test! I don't know why my brain jumped to watermelon, but I'm glad it did. What was going to be a way to waste the afternoon turned into an amazing discovery! Those asking what it smelled like: Sickly sweet with base-notes of burning hair. For those who say this is not science, I disagree. This experiment was a way to apply a lot...
