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.

Video description
I read a myth (below) that said striking a drop of water with a hot iron and hammer will send the hammer flying. luckily I just met a local Blacksmith!
Trez is a great guy, he has a small channel, but mainly focuses on working as a blacksmith. He makes all his own hammers and tools, and could make you something too!

"When you spit on a piece of red hot iron, it dances around in a little ball. If you hit the ball with your hammer, the explosion will throw the hammer over the barn and blow a hole in the iron!"

Why do blacksmiths ring their anvils?

WELL THEN, Once upon a time long long ago and far far away; on an island where the grass is emerald green,

A VILLAGE SMITH was shoeing a horse at his open air shop. His large anvil rang with each blow to the shoes. Standing quietly in the shade of the spreading chestnut tree, the horse waited patiently.

THE DEVIL, passing by, heard the ringing of the anvil and decided to see what was going on. He stood watching as the blacksmith made a wonderful set of new shoes for the horse.

THE SMITH then proceeded to trim the horse's hooves and nail the shoes in place. The horse stood quietly as this was done, and when the smith finished, the owner of the horse mounted his steed and took him for a trot down the road.

THE HORSE was noticeably happy with his new shoes, for he danced and he pranced all the way to the corner and back.

SEEING THIS, the Devil being a hoofed creature himself, decided that he must have a set of these wonderful shoes. He approached the smith and told him to prepare a set of shoes for him.

THE SMITH (realizing that this was the Devil himself), made a set of shoes too small, trimmed the hooves too short and drove several close nails in each of the devils hooves. He also clinched them quite heavily so they would not come off easily. The Devil in terrible pain, lame and very sore footed went running away and suffered for many days.

SO to this very day when ever the Devil hears an anvil ringing he makes it a point to stay as far away as possible.

THIS is also why hanging a horseshoe over the door keeps the Devil away!

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...

Molten Iron Vs. HUGE Magnet

Backyard Scientists T-Shirts! Limited Edition campaign, buy one now! - http://shop.crowdmade.com/collections/backyardscientist/ 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!

Giant Mouse Trap [Smashes Everything]

Ive got a bit of a Raccoon problem at my house… I built something to fix the problem. It breaks multiple local ordinances and a few international treaties, but I give you THE GIANT MOUSETRAP!

Pouring Molten Metals into Water. COOL! (Aluminum, Thermite, Lead + More!)

Ive been pouring 7 different metals into a 24" tall aquarium over the weekend, and the results have been super cool! I poured metals with different melting points to see if they had any different effects when they came in contact with water. From Pewter (350f/170c) all the way to Thermite (4000f/2204c). Some of them exploded, some of them sank and made molten metal drippy-castles, but they were all interesting. Here is a list of metals I used, and their melting points: Pewter 338–446 °F - 170–230 °C Tin - 449.5°F (231.9°C) Bismuth - 520.6°F (271.4°C) Lead - 621.5°F (327.5°C) Zinc - 787.2°F...

So this little practice bit was really good! It was a fail! I got to see things I had not seen before with heat treating a welded steel face to a softer body. I need to play a bit with the heat treatment to get it down correct and then I can move onto the wrought iron stake anvils.
