Do you know what the speed of the emitted a cork from a bottle of champagne? And the fastest animal on Earth? Is there a speed faster than the speed of light? Today we tell you about the most incredible speed record.
The rate of movement of nerve impulses of the human body is approximately 90 m / sec.
The largest toy train speed can reach 10 km / h.
The largest rate among the animals developed peregrine falcon, when swoops on its prey. His record – 322 km / h.
In boiling water molecule speeds up to 650 m / sec.
The slowest speed in the sport is only 1.35 km / h. This rate was fixed at tug of war.
Flying golf ball quickly reach speeds of 270 km / h after hitting his stick.
The length of an aircraft flying at a speed of 1000 km / h can be increased by 1 cm relative to its length at rest.
Windiest place on Earth – is Bay Commonwealth, located in the Antarctic. It is officially recognized in the eighth edition of National Geographic atlas and in the Guinness World Records the most windiest place on Earth. You can forget about the fleeting gusts of wind, because there harsh blow vortices at 240 km / h.
The most sluggish mammal – a three-toed sloth, his speed of about 2 m / m
Is there a superlight speed? Probably everyone, even far from the physics of the people are aware of the speed of light in vacuum. This is the maximum possible speed of any material object or signal propagation. The speed of light in vacuum is denoted by the letter “C”, approximately 300 000 km / s (the exact value of – 299 792 458 m / s). In 2000, the Research Institute of Princeton (USA) took the following experiment. Lidzhun Wong and his assistants missed a laser pulse through a small chamber 6 cm long, filled with cesium vapor. The result of experiment showed that when the light beam enters a chamber filled with cesium vapor, its speed increases by more than 300 times. This means that the greatest speed registered on the Earth, has a beam of light in vacuum. It is 310 times greater than the speed of light.
The greatest rate of human astronauts fixed the module “Apollo 10″ at a distance of 122 km from the Earth’s surface. She is 39 897 km / h and is the largest rate ever developed by man.
Record the driver’s blind Hein Wagner has been recognized by representatives of Guinness World Records. He managed to accelerate to 322.5 km / h and maintain that speed over a kilometer. The main purpose of Wagner, he said, was to draw public attention to the problems of blind people.
16-year-old from Kiev Ira Ivanchenko has developed a read speed up to 163 333 words per minute, fully mastered the material read. This result has been officially registered in the presence of journalists. Another record reading was recorded September 9, 1989. This unofficial speed record of reading – 416 of 250 words per minute – was installed during the test under the guidance of the Kiev Center. The center was investigated brain record holder Eugene Alekseenko and developed a special test. During the test in the presence of several scientists Eugene read 1390 words per 1 / 5 second. This time it takes people time to blink. Please read all the details of record holder retold hours. Another record reading – 60 000 characters per minute – a set of Russian schoolgirl Svetlana Arkhipova. He is listed in the Guinness Book of Records.
The greatest rate products on offspring in humans is 58 children per year. This record was set in Morocco Sultan Ismail Moola (reigned from 1672 to 1727). At age 31, he had 342 daughters and 525 sons. Sultan Moulay Ismail contained 500 concubines.
The highest speed: The record is 2600 A4 pages per minute. His set printer Inkjet Web Press Company Hewlett-Packard. With that, the cost of a printed page was very low – less than a cent per page.
Was calculated by the German physicist Friedrich Bulq Technical University with the help of acoustic and photoelectric devices. He found that the escape velocity from the bottle cork is 40 km / h and reaches a flight altitude of approximately 12 meters. In theory, congestion and can reach speeds of 100 km / h when the bottle well before opening, shake or put under direct sunlight.
Record set 58-year-old musician from England, Rory Blackwell (Rori Blackwell). October 24, 1991 in a holiday park Finleyk county of Devonshire (UK), he produced the 3720 drum beats per minute (that is 62 beats per second)
