Fun science experiment with metronomes

Synchronization of 5 coupled metronomes in Lancaster University. Explanation on the video after the jump.



As an addendum to the above video, Vibrationdata presents another physics masterpiece. Watch as three metronomes set at slightly different rates around 192 beats per minute go from chaos to complete and perfect synchronization. Coupled only by a meter stick resting on two soda cans, this demonstrates science at its greatest.
