Lecture Description

In this video lesson, Nick Drozdoff demontrates an interesting experiment: Can the un-amplified sound of a New York Trumpet Company California Stage 1 model Bb trumpet shatter this wine glass? Nick Drozdoff was able to shatter this cheap wine glass after class one day horsing around while some kids were doing some homework in the back of the lab. Normally this demo is done using a speaker to drive a beaker, but he thought it would be fun to do with the horn.

This will also be included on Nick Drozdoff's Science Olympiad page.
