So fun fact about the anvil mark was using. Thats a common one sold by harbor freight, they do not harden their anvil's work surface like most normal anvils would have. Therefore the diamond was actually harder than the soft steel. While diamond is harder than regular soft steel it would be much more of a challenge if they tried denting a hardened steel anvil
@FirefuryAmahira Hace 5 días
Clearly they need to get in touch with one of the blacksmithing channels on ESvid and test that diamond against a real anvil! 🤣 Or maybe a power hammer!

Learning about science can be fun in video games. So can using things you learned and then almost forgot. For example, I learned a few things about aerodynamics and balance when I was a kid trying to become a pilot, and then I made use of it all building space planes in Kerbal Space Program. PS for the diamond, you should've used an oxyfuel torch for your wildcard. Encasing it in lava sealed it off from oxygen, but diamonds will burn. You should've hit it with an oxidizing flame.
@2012TheAndromeda Hace 6 días
I thought Mark was gonna shatter the diamond at that certain angle! Drat! I was hoping he'd win that one! I believe a diamond can break more easily if excessive force is applied at an angle perpendicular to the alignment of the atoms inside it.. Or something like that... Overall, very fun video to watch!! Thank you!

I am glad that Mark did this video because ever since Jurassic World--Fallen Kingdom came out, I have complained that the scenes in that film that involved lava were not even close to reality. For example, when Owen is trying to roll over the log, you clearly see his hand flip the lave up. Next he is enveloped in a Pyroclastic flow and suffered no damage at all. Finally, when the dino was attack Clair and that blek dude who was a humiliation to men everywhere with all of his damsel in distress screaming and whining, the dino was hit in the head by falling lumps of lava and it did not effect him other than something like a mild shock. Watching the turkey leg the reaction was what we should have seen.

The damage done also depends greatly on the lava you use. Silicate lava (the melted "lava rock") is generally the coolest ranging from 800C-900C. Whereas Ultramafic lava can be almost twice as hot, ranging from 1600C-2000C (hot enough to melt steel and vaporize a lot of materials). In addition fluoroantimonic acid, Carborane acid, or Magic acid would be much more effective.
