In her latest video, “Physics Girl” Dianna Cowern harnesses the power of electromagnets to obliterate soda cans.
The experiment was carried out with the aid of Arc Attack Studios in Austin, TX and utilizes an electric current running through a magnetic field. The power of the field increases as more current is applied, which in turn creates a secondary current with its own magnetic field that is aligned with the first. The resulting repelling force of these two fields leads to the can being violently torn apart.
Even if you don’t follow the physics, the video is still interesting to watch. Check it out below.
