  1. it’s funny when people say this is fake they should probably do some
    research before jumping to conclusions

  2. The theory presented by Professor Mark Warner and Dr.John Biggins from the
    University of Cambridge is wrong!
    1) The chain used by Steve Mould has round beads, thus it should not work
    according to their theory, but it does work!
    2) The suggestion that the chain is „pushed up by the pot“ is absurd, a
    complete furphy and not in compliance with any law of physics.
    3) To suggest that the centripetal force has something to do with it while
    ignoring the centrifugal force is also absurd, another furphy to confuse
    the public.
    4) You may have noticed that the „macaroni chain“ performed a lot worse
    than the Mould chain, whereas it should be the opposite way round according
    to the theory.

    Here is the real theory why the chain creates a fountain and it works
    particularly well with a bead chain as Steve Mould has used, round beads
    with a short elastic connection.
    The chain moves at a constant speed, thus there is zero acceleration
    between each bead, with exception at the point where the chain is picked
    up. At this point a bead is suddenly accelerated and as soon as it joins
    the preceding bead it is retarded again to zero acceleration, when joining
    the synchronous speed of all other moving beads.The momentum imparted onto
    the accelerating bead will be transferred to the preceding bead which then
    provides the force required to push it vertically up and create the

  3. I presume this is why, if you have an old-fashioned bathplug and chain, and
    try to put the plug on the edge of the bath, if any of the chain slips off
    the edge, the chain and plug end up jumping back into the bath.

  4. This is also called the „chain fountain effect“ which sounds marginally
    better than the „self-siphoning beads“ effect.

  5. Is there a way this can be done in full circle as in have firstly a chain
    that is really long and is one singular loop, a beaker to hold the mass,
    with a hole in the bottom so the mass weight doesnt let it slip through, im
    thinking some sort of coil shape…. perpetual motion could this be turned
    into free energy or does physics dictate no 🙁

  6. Ugh… I ordered 3.2 mm chain. I noticed you commented 4.5. Do you think
    3.2 will have the same effect?

  7. Shitty audio. Shame on you. You cared enough to light it decently, but
    didn’t care about us with ears. Try again.
    Good journey.

  8. Hi, I went to your lecture in cam bridge for science week on Sunday and I
    was thinking about it on the way home when I noticed. I don’t know how long
    polymers are, can one molecule be for example a meter long.
    Was the tape made of molecules as long as the tape going longways or loads
    of shorter (but still quite long) molecules going longways.

  9. It is logical if when looking at the equations that describe that. I love
    when classical mechanics yields surprising results that is true.
