This animation was commissioned for the Youtube series Smarter Every Day.
It's a small preview of the actual science shown in the video. And the graphs are scientifically accurate!
The dripping honey coils as it falls, forming the 'S' of the Smarter Every Day title. Destin suggested that I use pastel crayons to create a sticky honey texture, and I think it turned out great. Enjoy the video below, and a big thank you to Gordon McGladdery for the great soundtrack.
