    Wouldn't it be interesting if he reversed it after the 7th time?

  • Adin Gilman-Cohen

    Would this still work if the colors were injected at the same height, at the same radius, but at different angles from the center (It looks like he injects at the same height but different with a different radius for each)? i.e.- would it work of one dye had to pass through another dye to return to its starting point? Would they be able to mix and then separate?

    is there a point of no return to the reverse laminar flow demonstration? like, spinning the barrel past a certain amount of turns such that the dots wont return to their original shapes

    Fun fact : in French, "Couette" means duvet (or comforter)
    It is also an homonym for "hair in bunches" or "Pony tail"
    Voilà voilà..

    I'm french and I can say that you're really not far off for how to pronounce Couette. You put slightly too much emphasis on the "ou" but that's about it.

    I was sitting here studying my ground school weather for aviation and thought of this video. If the inside was a sphere instead of a cylinder, that would be a great model of weather dynamics and the different speeds of the earth causing that curve in fronts! I need to find a way to make that!
