The Action Lab is a channel dedicated to performing exciting experiments and answering questions you never thought to ask! I'll put things in my hydraulic press, vacuum chamber and perform countless other experiments just to watch cool phenomenon. I experiment on the world and objects around me. You'll be so amazed that you'll forget you are even learning anything! Please enjoy as I continually answer the "what would happen if..." questions you have. Feel free to comment with any scientific questions you have about anything. I have made my career as a PhD in Chemical Engineer and now I want to share how awesome science and experimentation can be! Visit my Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/TheActionLabRat

In this video I show you what happens when you spray Neverwet, a superhydrophobic spray on sodium and then put it in water (big mistake!). I also test it on random things like bread and sugar and a paper towel.

Don't Spray Sodium Metal With Water After Flattening It In A Hydraulic Press!

In this video I crush pure sodium metal in the hydraulic press. First I show how sodium reacts with water explosively. Then I crush the sodium metal in the hydraulic press until it is flat like aluminum foil. After that I get the bright idea to spray it with water since it has so much surface area. Send me things to crush at: PO Box 482 North Plains OR 97133 *If you do send me something message me so I know it's coming!

Shining Light Through Solid Balls Using Quantum Mechanics—Poisson's Spot Experiment

In this video I show you how it is possible to shine light through a sphere using the wave-like nature of light. This spot in the center of the shadow of a sphere is called Poisson's spot or Arago's spot. It is a result of the diffraction of light around the edges of the sphere that constructively interfere right at the center. Then I show you what it actually looks like to look at the center of poisson's spot. Does it look like the light is actually going through the ball?

Well actually you can! I first show you the method that is usually used by using an emulsifier. But then I show you an amazing new technique that invloves removing the dissolved air from the water. This causes hydroxide ions to be able to come into contact better with the oil droplets and keeps the tiny oil droplets repelled even after the air is added back in!
