The Sound of Hydrogen [Video]

Just last week’s post about the Radioactive Orchestra, this video illustrates the concept of atomic radiation through sensory switch techniques–by exchanging light waves for sound waves, we can hear hydrogen.

Produced by Henry Reich, this short animation is part of a series of animations that quickly explain a physics concept. We featured “Something from Nothing” here a couple weeks ago, which explains antimatter pretty handily. Check out the rest on the MinutePhysics YouTube channel.
