멀리서 꺼진 촛불에 불붙이는 과학적인 마술(동영상)

(0) Comments | Posted May 18, 2015 | 11:54 AM

밤에 실례를 하더라도 불장난은 항상 재밌는 법.

꺼진 촛불을 멀리서 다시 점화하는 이 비디오 속에는 과학이 숨어있다.

과학자들의 설명에 따르면 촛불을 껐을 때 위로 올라가는 연기 속에는 미처 다 타지 못한 왁스 성분이 포함되어있어 이 연기에 불을 대면 왁스 연기를 타고 재점화가 일어난다.

같은 실험을 초당 2,500프레임의 슬로우 모션을 촬영한 아래 동영상도 확인해보시길.

좋아, 오늘 술자리 아이템은 이거다!
