    [–]AggressiveSpatula 542 points543 points  (86 children)

    I have edited this comment slightly, and added an addendum at the end.

    Hey so fun fact, the phone must might have been on a string or something when it fell. Either that or it was faked entirely. (The following part of the comment assumes that there was significant human error in how the phone was dropped which would have led to noticing the intermediate axis theorem. I did not specify this, and it does not have to be the case). You see how it wavers back and forth like that? There’s something called the intermediate axis theorem that prevents that from happening. Basically for any object which has three different axis lengths, the middle axis isn’t able to be spun around consistently (well you can but it’s exceedingly difficult). On a phone, your shortest axis is through the screen to the back, essentially how thick your phone is. If you lay your phone flat in your palm, and spin it like you’re tossing a pizza, you’ll see it spins pretty easily. The longest axis is from the top of your phone to the bottom of your phone. So if you take your phone laying flat, and spin it around that axis, it will spin fairly easily that way too. The intermediate axis however, stretches from the left to the right side of your screen, and if you flip along that axis (end over end so that the top passes through the space where the bottom of your phone currently is), you will find that it does not spin stably. Your phone will make a half turn, or a full turn, or even more when you try to flip it like that. This works for all rectangular shapes like a credit card, or other non-rectangles which have three different axis lengths like a tennis racket. It can be a fun challenge to see if you can get it to flip without spinning.

    Addendum: a lot of people have brought up many really good points as to how this video might not be faked. The purpose of this comment was not really to call the video out on its validity, rather to use its potential validity as an avenue to introduce people to something I was interested in that I thought they might share that interest. In addition, one user /u/Georgi_boi pointed out that this channel drops phones down this specific stairwell very often, and there is a good possibility that A) the creator has gotten very good at dropping phones neutrally which is a skill most people would not posses and that is part of what I made my assumption on. B) it could very well simply be a numbers game, and it is by chance that this is the time he was able to drop it nearly perfect.

    Thank you everybody for your ideas, I am trying to respond to all of them. I think many of you are bringing up really good counter arguments for why I may be wrong.

    And spatulas...?

    [–]AggressiveSpatula 45 points46 points  (8 children)

    I suppose they’re interesting as well, but I’ve yet to meet an anthropomorphically aggressive one in real life. They should have an intermediate axis though. I’m not sure. I don’t know if the same effect happens when a majority of the mass is concentrated on one end. I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t work, but that’s not exactly evidence that it does.

    [–]CookieShop99 13 points14 points  (7 children)

    Theres too much weight on one side of the spatula so it will just point down and fall straight

    [–]AggressiveSpatula 13 points14 points  (6 children)

    I would think it could have that the effect for a short while if you give it some umph on the toss, but your explanation does make sense in the longer run. That being said, you could also make the opposite argument that if you weren’t doing in a vacuum then the spatula would fall in the most aerodynamic way, which could be handle first, due to the large surface area of the... not handle thing (the flippy part). So I don’t really know. I guess I know tomorrow’s quarantine activity.

    [–]ciromny 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    Chef here, as someone who constantly flips metal offset spatulas, they definitely make half or full turns.

    [–]beefwarrior 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Hello, this is Sy Greenblum, president of Spatula City. I liked their spatulas so much, I bought the company.

    [–]quick20minadventure 17 points18 points  (7 children)

    You can flip your phone horizontally and vertically on bed to check that. It'll start flipping on other axis too.

    [–]AggressiveSpatula 2 points3 points  (6 children)

    I am not sure I understand what you mean when you say “on bed” but I imagine it should still work with a mattress if that’s what you’re saying, although I highly doubt it is.

    [–]quick20minadventure 10 points11 points  (5 children)

    I meant to say flip the phone, but do it on bed/mattress/soft surface so it doesn't break lol.

    [–]AggressiveSpatula 3 points4 points  (4 children)

    That does make more sense haha. Are you saying that when you tested it with your phone you got different results? I tried it just now and it seems to work for me, but I could be having a confirmation bias (especially now that this has gotten some attention, lol).

    [–]shoebob 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    The theorem is definitely true. I know what you're talking about but pretty sure it only happens when thrown over one of the axis, not the other.

    [–]AggressiveSpatula 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Ah. Yes, this is what I was trying to say, but I have been told I can be very bad at communicating my ideas. Describing the different axises I found to be somewhat difficult haha.

    [–]quick20minadventure 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Yeah, i can confirm it very easily. If you flip it on left to right axis, it'll change the orientation on the other axis and your phone will be upside down compared to the original orientation.

    Flipping on other axis will not cause any such spin.

    Also, intermediate axis theroem is so well established, you don't need to test it.

    [–]AggressiveSpatula 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    I recognize it’s well established but that doesn’t prevent my anxiety from letting me believe I made the whole thing up and am now making a fool of myself.

    [–]Clazzic 20 points21 points  (12 children)

    How are you gonna say its fake when there's a video including a smashed phone at the bottom of the stairs.

    Did they fake the footage and plant the phone?

    Wouldn't faking the footage be much harder than just dropping the phone?

    [–]smitty9112 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    The phone could have still been dropped on a string/rope and broke before the bottom. It may not have been a completely controlled descent but it was certainly assisted. As physics wouldnt have gone that way if the phone were completely dropped free. Thats the clear point being made by /u/AggressiveSpatula

    [–]AggressiveSpatula 15 points16 points  (10 children)

    I wasn’t necessarily trying to say that it was full out fake, rather that it seems likely that the phone wasn’t allowed to fall as it naturally could have. Perhaps it was falling along a string to help it keep its orientation. That said, if it truly is falling just by being dropped, that makes it even more interesting. The nature of the intermediate axis theorem is that the intermediate axis being flipped over is an unstable system. Think of a ball resting on top of a hill. That is an unstable system because the slightest push could send it cascading down. If the phone truly was able to fall freely, then whoever dropped it must have done so very cleanly, as the slightest imperfection over this amount of time probably would have shown. I think that would be even more amazing than if this was faked. Perhaps because he didn’t intentionally spin it over the intermediate axis, the effect would be more muted and we could not see it, but my intuition tells me we still would have seen some kind of effect. Of course, math has been known to ignore my intuitions in previous circumstances.

    [–]shoebob 11 points12 points  (5 children)

    The flipping thing only happens lengthways, not over the other axis. This phone was wavering on the other axis and there's also a shit load of air which is affecting its rotation.

    [–]AggressiveSpatula 2 points3 points  (4 children)

    This explanation makes a lot of sense to me. I did think that it would be strange to go through the effort of altering how the phone would fall like attaching a string or something, so an explanation for how it could fall like that without needing to violate the intermediate axis theorem like you have provided is probably more likely to be correct.

    [–]shoebob 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    What gets me most is how they were able to get the phone to fall so many floors before hitting a railing. That is the most unexpected thing for me in this vid. I thought for sure the air rushing past the phone would send it right into the rails, especially with the flat drop. Did you watch the YouTube vid source that was linked above?

    [–]AggressiveSpatula 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Yeah I watched the droppy part, but conceivably that could have been done after many takes, as it sounds like the guy was very excited that it made it all the way. I have no idea what his budget is. That said, it does seem slightly odd.

    [–]CCLasagana 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Shouldn't there be a mild initial tilt in every axis in such an uncontrolled system?

    Btw I do not think it is possible to apply the theorem directly here. The mass in the phone is 100% not uniform, unlike the problems in physics textbooks. The centre of inertia itself is not located at the apparent centre of the phone in either axes. It is bound to rotate even if the phone was released perfectly horizontal from a string or something.

    [–]AggressiveSpatula 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I think you make an excellent point, and that does make a lot of sense to me. There would have to be an initial tilt for this to happen, and when I made the claim that some humpery dickery was going on, I assumed that there must be some human error in how it was dropped, which does not have to be the case.

    Somewhere else in the thread however, there was a chef who mentioned that he sees this effect (affect?) on spatulas in his workplace, which is certainly not a uniform mass object. Also one of the places this effect (think it’s this one) was first noticed was on tennis rackets, which while they could conceivably have their center of mass in the middle, are not uniform mass objects either.

    [–]xActuallyabearx 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    Idk why you’re being downvoted. I’d bet money on you being right. While I can’t explain it in the extended detail you did, if you picture trying to drop a phone, or a piece of toast or a piece of paper or anything rectangular, from that hight, the chance of it never flipping over during the fall is basically zero.

    [–]AggressiveSpatula 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Maybe it’s because I stated with certainty that something was happening in the original comment, but conceded that there are ways that it could have happened without humpery-dickery occurring. That bothered me about my original comment to be fair. I do think it’s possible something else was going on that I hadn’t thought of but still started what I did with confidence. I’m glad it looks odd to you too though. It certainly felt off when I was watching it, and that was my explanation. I also have a habit of saying “fun fact” on things that are really just my opinion so that colloquialism might be being misused haha.

    [–]Georgi_boi 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    I understand where you're coming from but I really think that this was unassisted in any way. The channel that made that video (TechRax or something like that) has dropped so many phones down that stairway, and most just started to rotate off to a side then hit the stairs bout half way through, and in the video above is the first time I see the phone go that far down. So I think that this just happened by pure chance purely because that dude has done it so many times when it didn't happen, it was bout to eventually.

    [–]buckzor122 6 points7 points  (6 children)

    You have a point but you're forgetting to account for the air resistance which would stabilise it. Drop a piece of paper and you will see the wavering effect even more pronounced.

    This is discarding the fact that there is no point in faking it either, these are YouTubers who smash shit for views, I'd doubt they'd have the skillet required to make such a fake even if they had a reason to.

    [–]SkyIDreamer 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    Well the "fake" thing isn't the phone falling and being broken but the fact that we have a camera view of the fall (it's the thing that gives views.

    I'm not sure at that height that the phone would still be working and that the footage could be recovered, so there's actually a reason to fake it.

    [–]AustinQ 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Absolutely would be recoverable. You can catch a computer on fire or smash it with a hammer, as long as the onboard memory is still intact you can pull it out and upload the data. And a drop from that height would certainly not kill the memory, you'd have to blend the damn phone to achieve that.

    [–]impasta_ 4 points5 points  (6 children)

    How dare you make me learn

    [–]AggressiveSpatula 4 points5 points  (4 children)

    Oh buckle up then. So there’s a well known proof you’ll get when you run into number theory for the first time which says “prove that for any p where p is a prime greater than 3, that (p2) -1 is divisible by 24. Now that alone sounds pretty cool, right? 52 is 25, minus 1 is 24, so it works with 5. (72)-1 is 48 which is a multiple of 24, that’s cool too.

    Anyway that proof is done by basically breaking down 24 into its prime factors (2x2x2x3), and then showing that each of those factors go into (p2)-1.

    For example, we know that all primes greater than 3 are odd, and we also know that an odd times an odd will also be odd. So we know that all primes squares will be odd. When you subtract 1 from an odd number, you get an even number. Therefore, we have just proven that all primes squared minus one will have to be divisible at least by 2.

    ANYWAY, what’s really cool about this proof is that it accidentally proves something else along the way.

    Basically, if you take any prime number greater than 3, subtract 1, and divide by 2, the sum of numbers from 1 to that number will be divisible by three. For example:

    17

    Minus 1 is 16

    Divide by 2 is 8

    1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8= 36 is divisible by 3. How cool is that? I think it’s very cool.

    Go ahead and pick any prime number and this will work. I think it’s very neat.

    [–]I_am_a_Failer 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Wow, thats useless but so neat

    [–]crappy_pirate 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Go ahead and pick any prime number and this will work.

    aight, imma test this. to google! "large prime numbers" okay, this is one of the results so let's pick ... 1109. cool.

    1109 squared is 1,229,881, minus 1 is 1,229,880. divide by 24 = 51,245.

    nice. i'm not doing the other proof tho. i'll bet you're correct.

      I admit that the video might not be faked as many people have made some very strong arguments regarding that. The intermediate axis theorem however, I assure you, is not pseudoscience. At least not by conventional definitions of the term. However, you may have a different definition of science, that may be the case. What about it makes you believe it is pseudoscience? How do you define what it means to be true?

      [–]Oikeus_niilo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      but there's air resistance and many object go weirdly when they fall

      [–]isaaclw 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      Is this theorem related to the surface area pushing against air? When I visualized the spinning of all three scenarios, the "intermediate axis" had to move the most air out of the way.

      [–]AggressiveSpatula 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      No! It actually can work in space iirc. It is also notoriously difficult to explain. I think there’s an anecdote of one of Feynman’s (I think it was Feynman) students coming to him after class saying “Professor Feynman, I was researching the Intermediate Axis Theorem, and finding it difficult to understand, is there a simpler way of understanding what’s happening?” To which Feynman thought for a moment and said “No.”

      That said, there’s a video by Numberphile (maybe Veratasium) that goes into a bit of depth explaining Terence Tao’s simple explanation that kinda makes sense.

      [–]CantHitachiSpot 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I love Reddit and it's "fun" "FaCtS". This phone wasn't spinning.

      [–]AggressiveSpatula 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I do agree that the phone wasn’t spinning, but to me, my comment wasn’t as much about calling the video fake, so much as telling people about a cool math theorem. It does not matter very much to me if it is actually fake or not, I was just using it as an avenue to tell people about something I was interested in.

      It’d be like if there was a video of a guy scaring some ostriches, and they run away. In that instance I could say “Fun fact, ostriches only stuck their heads in the ground when they’re hungry, not when they’re scared.” (I think that’s true but really no idea, it’s a hypothetical), the point isn’t to call the video fake outright, the point was to use the possibility of it being fake to segue to something I’m passionate about (in that case ostriches, in this case math). Saying it was possibly fake happens in the first sentence and then pretty much never again in the entirety of the comment.

      [–]Wonce 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      What? The intermediate axis theorem, while cool, it not at all the dominant effect here. IAT requires higher degrees of rotational velocity to really take off. At the speeds this phone is going through the air, the aerodynamic forces will be far and away more influential on the phone's acceleration about different axes.

      BTW, check out this cool video demonstrating the intermediate axis theorem in spaaaaace

My best guess is that if you rotate the axis inside the object to align it to opposite corners like that, then the other axis would become misaligned and not properly represent axises, but to be honest with you, I only know of the theorem, not how it works, I think you make a really impressive point.

      Maybe it's just me, but why the fuck do these things exist other than to throw a bad guy down them in a movie.

      Edit 2: not the staircase themselves, the stairwells. Thanks for the clarification and extra knowledge

      [–]AyeBraine 16 points17 points  (2 children)

      ? Why stairwells exist? Because you need to build a four-sided staircase. Think about it, if your goal is to make a staircase that has 4 flights every floor/two floors (situated inside a "tower"), you can't push them completely together so that there's no hole in the middle. They will have literally no space where you can put the actual steps into, just the huge landings. And if you make the stair continuous (like a circular spiral staricase), you'd have to cut in doors in the middle of steps, there would be no landings (which are useful for all sorts of reasons), and also the steps would be absurdly oversized.

      I made a drawing to make it clearer.

      So they have to go along the walls with some space between them, allowing for flat landings to exist, and simultaneously squeezing in staircases with enough steps to make the stair useful.

      [–]Thibbledorf_Pwent 6 points7 points  (1 child)

      None of this was really necessary but I'll be damned if I don't appreciate the hell out of your passion and dedication to stairwell facts bro. With an illustration??? 10/10 respect.

      [–]AyeBraine 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      I just wanted to understand myself why this is the case. I didn't think about it before, but I know that if something is built a certain way (and in hundreds of buildings, as well), there is probably a reason for it. So I tried to imagine how I could squeeze the hole so that no one could fall in. That's also why I doodled it.

      BTW, if you have two-flight stairs you can do away with a wide hole, BUT they still sometimes make a hole, like in my apartment house (looks like this). I think it's because that's how the layout of apartments is designed (there is space you need to fill), and maybe because a landing needs some width? Like, to carry sofas and pianos upstars. I'm sure as hell grateful for wider landings since we barely squeezed when me and my buddy carried an old sofa down the stairs recently.

      Genuinely thought the film of the phone falling was the guy just fast tracking him down by jumping down the centre. Can't believe I got fast tracked to Skyrim in the end
