Floating an Anvil on Liquid Mercury

We got a nice little breeze today, it’s perfect weather for this. It’s not too hot. The sun’s pretty bright Hi everyone, welcome back to Cody’s lab so a little while ago over on the second channel I posted a video of me trying to float an anvil in mercury. Despite it getting lots of views. It didn’t actually work So I wanted to try again So I got a much smaller anvil here Of course, I’m kidding. I got a much bigger tub of mercury, so this ought to get that anvil t’float This is much easier Get a little bit more wiggle room Woah Its also, you stand in there too long cut the circulation off to your feet. Oh gosh, feet are tingly as it goes back There’s no mercury sloshing in there. So I know they didn’t leak. Let’s uh, I got this rag wet Let’s wipe off the top All that oxides and stuff off of there Isn’t that pretty Since the rag’s wet it sticks right to it Don’t get all of it but That’s a lot better then it was alright, so here’s my 110 pound (49.9kg) iron working anvil. I think we got this for making horseshoes and stuff back when we had horses So I set it in here and see if it floats Okay, it doesn’t seem to want to stay upright. I’ll just let it tip over and there it is, it’s floatin’ Look at that The iron anvil floats because mercury has a density nearly twice that of iron In fact due to the density ratios, the iron actually floats better than wood does in water Push it down. Woah, it’s hard to push down. That’s great here let’s try it again from the other side Ok, here we go Push down Bobs up like a cork. Okay. I want to try hitting it with a hammer I think it dulls the sound quite a bit. Just pull it up out of here set it on that okay It definitely sounds a lot different That’s actually pretty nice to have your anvil sitting in mercury while you work it to deaden that sound That way it doesn’t hurt your ears as much. That’s pretty good Barely make it wobble by hitting it Just sit that there, my hammer in. Hammer floats too That’s pretty great. Hope you enjoyed I’ll see you next time. Apparently I got mercury in my glove A lot of good that did *Chuckles* *Bubbling sound of mercury*

  1. Codey you have a voice that suites ASMR viewers. If you ever run out mine or yt material you could start your own ASMR video. Maybe get into pork too. It'll be tough in the beginning but you'll get used to it one day at a time.

    Btw, do these comments reach your inbox?

  2. Some flat earthers used this video in order to prove that the gravity doesn't exist beacause the anvil is floating !! It's sad ! The worst thing is that they erased the audio of the video to not have your scientific explanation…

  3. Cody, a guy who claims to have "evidence against the globe earth" is using this video to prove that there is no gravity, and the effect of objects falling towards the center of the earth is explained by density and buoyancy. Would you please explain to this person why he is wrong?

  4. Just seeing that anvil float on mercury is just way too cool. Imagine showing this to somebody who's accustomed to seeing heavy metals sink underwater! They'd probably get seizures after looking at a demonstration of mercury being heavier.

  5. All these globetards crying about flat earthers using your video to prove that grabbity is a hoax and want u to explain for them cuz they are too stupid to figure it them selves.

  6. Wow, it doesn't make me comfortable to see somebody like this playing around with toxins like they're a toy. Glad he's not my neighbor.

  7. wtf did you get all that mercury?
    It's probably murica, so ye don't give a shit about the environment so you can probably get it in the local shop.

  8. I wonder if having a small mercury filled cavity inside an anvil would help to deaden the sound.

  9. My friend Claudio desperately wants to know how did you go about disposing of the mercury once you were finished.

  10. I can't believe someone that seems so intelligent could be so utterly stupid. Guess we won't be seeing these videos for much longer since he keeps huffing Mercury and will probably end up with neurological damage in the long run.

  11. Where is gravity??????????????????
    That just proves that DENSITY is what is making objects to go up or down….And yet another myth about GRAVITY busted.

  12. Nobody can get their hands on so much mercury. it's Fake. what he has there is an old decommisioned T-1000.

  13. BEST QUESTION OF THE DAY :
    Q. How much does all the mercury weigh inside the tub.?

    We know the anvil weighs 110 lbs.

    Q. Does the total weight of the mercury weigh more than or less than that of the 110 lb. anvil ?

  14. Do you realise you’re proving gravity is not a real force ? It’s the lie that makes us think people are stuck to a spinning ball on which water is convex as oceans –

    Example – in relation to hot air balloons

    A tiny flame makes gravity disappear-

    In reality it makes the air hotter which makes it LESS DENSE so it rises through the denser cold air – helium is LESS DENSE than air therefore rises through it – hydrogen is LESS DENSE than air and therefore rises through it – see a pattern ? Is a helium balloon taken up by a magical force ? I could call this effect of density relative to a medium ( air ) Schmavity- giving it a name makes it exist as a force , right ? All the lies of a globe are held together by gravity the fake force – gravity is mendacious glue for the brainwashing of children – it’s child abuse – it takes adults to spot the lies and tell others that we were all brainwashed by a system of control
