Exercise Ball Magnus Effect: HELIUM VS. AIR from 200m!


All right three, two, one, go! Go you good thing! So we’re just at a mall in Maseru, Lesotho getting some helium. It’s one of the most random things that we’ve done. What the heck. I’ll get ready with the pin. Three, two, one Yeah. It’s definitely not floating. Should find our Taxi. Let’s do it, let’s get moving. Right-o. We’re gonna do something pretty crazy today. We’ve got this amazing location, and we’re gonna do another Magnus effect video. But there’s a bit of a twist. Half the balls are filled with helium. So which ones we got helium? That black one, this yellow one, and… I think the one in your left hand?
Yeah, this one’s helium. *Full* of helium!
So we’re gonna go at the same time and see if helium makes much of a difference to the Magnus effect on these different sports balls. The helium should go … much further shouldn’t it? I mean that’s the guess. Like helium’s lighter…
It should… But we’re not scientists. Oh the things we do. Alright Scotty, we need to do the same spin.
One, two, three. Yeah, no that’s good. So just to clarify,
yellow has helium Yellow has helium.
Helium! White does not have helium.
Maybe it just takes off into space. You get that rolling. We’ve got a drone up there somewhere having a look. Tell you what, there’s a few birds having a look too. Look at that Ryan, can you film that? *laughter*
It’s like a swarm! Live on, Mavic! So I can just throwing it just over the edge, but you gotta really rip it. Yeah, I mean what hope have I got with the whitey though? You got helium in it. Well, that’s the whole point, Scott! Is it like literally on touchdown or like where it actually finishes? Nah, touchdown. Oh man, I just wanted a sniff, you know? Go the white. 1, 2, 3, Go. Oh, helium is killing it, I reckon. Go helium! Helium all the way! Oh hang on, touchdown. Ohhhhh… There wasn’t much difference. It wasn’t. Tell you what, it wasn’t much different. It wasn’t a lot. I reckon maybe 20m, 10, 20 meters?
It’s hard to tell from up here. Maybe by the time we get to the gym balls,
it will have a bigger… Because there’s so much more helium in that thing
than in the soccer ball. You’re not wrong. It’s gonna be fun finding them as well. It’s a good battle though. Okay, thank you. Race number two, Stanford. Can I have the helium one?
Yeeahhhh… okay. Share the love. I’d love to beat you without helium. Shall we get a bit closer? Oh heck. All right, cool. Trust that harness. All right, here we go. Go the black. 3, 2, 1, go! Ohhhhhh, no! Get going! Go helium! Hit it! Hit it! Ohhhhhhh. Looks pretty even. Look mate, the truth is I gave that a little extra berries
at the start, and you still beat me! And I was coming back, too. There was a little bit of difference, but let’s be honest. You’re here for round three, it was probably the thumbnail, and here it is. You’re on the cross same? Yeah, get maximum grip. Alright 3, 2, 1, go! Go, you good thing! Go. Oh, mine is off! Goooo!! Look at him go! Look at it! *laughter* Wow! Oh my… That is going…
It’s still going! Oh, that was amazing. Flipping incredible. Okay, well, the helium was a comprehensive winner. Nah, I really kicked butt with that one.
Smashed it. That’s going about three hundred meters, I imagine. That is *so* far away. Is that down the river? Yeah, it’s heading down-river too. We’re gonna go get that. All right you and Scottie you’re gonna go collect them. Yeah, we’re heading down to the bottom.
Go pick them up. People do always say, “Oh, you just throw them away,” but no, we pick them up. Nah, we’re going to get them. We collect them because we keep nature beautiful. And let’s just say, it involves hours, not minutes. It’s a big hike down there. It’s a long way. What are we talking about? Look the exercise ball’s cool, and now, if you guys have seen it before, but to add helium in… Oh man, how good is that mate? Very good. 44 club – Thanks for watching our craziness.
Glad you’re sticking around ’til the end. Absolutely! Like, subscribe!
Oh, and hit that bell! The bell’s gotta be on!
The bell! We’ll see you next week! We forgot to do the commtest! Oh, no! Should we just throw it in now? How long did it take to fill these gym balls up (this exercise ball), only one, with helium? Yep, we did time it. And if you were closest, We’ll pin ya!
