Salt 'n Sound

From Diet Coke and Mentos to salt and sound waves. Watch as these guys use sound waves to transform ordinary salt into some pretty cool patterns. Please turn down your volume before viewing; it gets very high pitched.

That is so cool! I'm not much of a science person, so I don't understand how that works, but it really does make some cool patterns!

I'm not entirely sure either. My guess is that the different frequencies cause different areas of the metal plate to vibrate at different rates, causing the salt to travel to the valleys between the vibrating areas.

How are you, btw?
