    I don`t mean to be anal (ok I do) but he rotated it 6 times. he realized it @ the end when he had to rotate it one more time. Now that I got that out of my system... I thought it was pretty cool.

    it has to do with the viscosity of the syrup. if turned equal clockwise as counter-clockwise, then the particles will return to their original location. he took a glass of corn syrup and put in drops of dyed corn syrup, thus same thickness.

    dyed corn syrup in glycerin, with multiple cylinders capable of being turned. The colors are in seperate chambers so they look like they are mixing. The Laminar Flow will allow a droplet to be spread into a thread, and then return back into a droplet, but it won`t allow colors to mix, and then unmix. Fluid dynamics doesn`t work that way. In other words, it`s a trick, and not really as cool as it seems on the video.

    Maybe the one spin doesn`t count. It`s probably to reverse inertia.
    Either way, excuse his one mistake. He`s clearly smarter than any of you.

    IkeRay above explained it correctly. Both liquids were corn syrup. Only the ones added later was dyed different colours. So all liquids have the same density.

    Now if it was moved slowly, and returned back slowly all particles will come back to their original positions, including the dyed particles.

    You will note that there were 2 people holding on to the jar to make sure that there was no movement on it. This was so that all particles could align correctly.

    It is just water and the injected red stuff is water with red dye in it. There is this videos`s brother on YouTube called "turbulent flow".

    A low flow rates the layers of liquid flow over each other neatly and the dye slides between them. At higher flow rates, the shear between the different layers causes rotation in the flow this is the mixing.

    The whole thing was sorted out by Osborn Reynolds in 1883.

    These fluid dynamic effects are vital for planes flying, and other such stuff.

    You can also get the laminar and turbulet effect from a tap. The glassy flow is laminar, the cloudy, turbulent (not dissolved water).

    With non-mixing taps at the same flow rae you can get laminar from a cold tap and turbulent from a hot one, but don`t get me started

    haha thats cool.it happened because IT IS NOT WATER.it is CORNSYRUP which is very thick.he spun the liquids one way and spun them reverse the exact same way so they went back to where they were in the first place.it all a matter of science lmfao
