Water Drops Colliding at 5000 FPS [Video]

By Jason Fitzpatrick on December 15th, 2011

Earlier this week we shared some stunning photographs of water drops colliding in air; now we’re back with a 5000 FPS slow-motion video of the same phenomenon.

In the above video two drops of water are dropped, a fraction of a second apart, so that the second drop smashes into the Worthington Jet (the water up spout) created by the first drop. Add in a little milk and food coloring to make the collision more pronounced, film it all with a 5000 FPS Phantom Flex slow motion camera, and you’ve got yourself a stunning slow motion video.
