I love this channel! Grady does such a good job laying out how things work, and the visualizations he's able to make with his demonstrations are superb.
Videos like this make me want to study engineering. Again.
Also makes me think that HTML isn't very friendly to cool mathematic formulas, which is a bit of a shame, considering where it was born.
I'll never use this info but I love watching this guys videos. Super enjoyable knowing how the stuff we use daily works.
If you can hear someone shutting off the water in the shower with a big thud that is audible throughout the house, now you know why. It's not that they're slamming the valve handle against the wall, it's because they close the valve handle so quickly, the water rattles the pipe.
Go on, ask me how I know.
