Fun Fact: You Can Move a Kayak By Shooting It

0

For many of us, science class was really cool right up until it was time to learn chemistry in high school. Gone were the days of weird looking vials and re-runs of Bill Nye the Science Guy — now, we actually had to learn math equations. It was like having two math classes in the same day. And while that may be exciting for some of us…we weren’t the biggest fans.

This is one of the reasons why we appreciate the video below as much as we do — it demonstrates Newton’s Laws in the best way possible: with guns.

Just in case anyone needs a refresher: Newton’s Laws of physics state that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. This means that if something is made to travel in one direction — say, a bullet — it discharges energy in the opposite direction (recoil). So, theoretically, shouldn’t the force of a bullet being fired generate the same amount of force as the recoil from a rifle?

Obviously, energy is pushed in all directions when you fire a weapon. Not only are you getting the aforementioned recoil, but this energy is also taking the form of the gasses exiting other parts of the weapon. Nevertheless, the assumption is that the forces going forward and backward should be roughly the same — or are they?

YouTube’s Demolition Ranch was happy to put that to the test in the video below. Whether you’re in a science mood or just want to watch things explode, this is definitely worth a watch.
