It's truly surprising to see the incredible resilience of diamonds! Who would have thought they could withstand all that? I'm fascinated by the durability, though I admit, I'm still a bit hesitant to experiment with it myself. The idea of testing the limits of something so precious is both intriguing and nerve-wracking at the same time! 😅
@IsM1ku Před 5 dny
in reality they cost so much because the industry HEAVILY limits the supply
@zenlexon Před dnem
Diamonds straight up just don't react with acid since they're pure carbon. Lava's hot enough to ignite one (being carbon they are flammable) but smothering it in lava means no oxygen, which means no flame. Something like a blowtorch would just burn a diamond away into CO2 though
The real problem here is that Nigel didn’t pick the correct acids… He pick all the strong but still fairly safe acids. Had he put the safety “not last” this would have been a complete wipe imo.
@froggy878 Před dnem
Another thing to note: Acid seems better for organic materials overall, so why did Nigel go for the metal bat instead of the wooden one?

Love the video. Explanation about the anvil. The 50lb harbor freight ones are made from cast iron that is quite soft. So soft you'll dish it out from regular use if you dont grind it flat often. I'd be interested to see what it would do against a hardened steel anvil
@tylerhrenko6177 Před dnem
It would do the exact same thing. Maybe making less of a dent, seeing as harbor freight generally has cheaply made product. Diamond is a 10 on the Mohs hardness scale. Depending what alloy steel you’re working with it can vary from 6.5 to I think 7 or 7.5 for 1095 carbon steel

Learning about science can be fun in video games. So can using things you learned and then almost forgot. For example, I learned a few things about aerodynamics and balance when I was a kid trying to become a pilot, and then I made use of it all building space planes in Kerbal Space Program. PS for the diamond, you should've used an oxyfuel torch for your wildcard. Encasing it in lava sealed it off from oxygen, but diamonds will burn. You should've hit it with an oxidizing flame.

So fun fact about the anvil mark was using. Thats a common one sold by harbor freight, they do not harden their anvil's work surface like most normal anvils would have. Therefore the diamond was actually harder than the soft steel. While diamond is harder than regular soft steel it would be much more of a challenge if they tried denting a hardened steel anvil

The damage done also depends greatly on the lava you use. Silicate lava (the melted "lava rock") is generally the coolest ranging from 800C-900C. Whereas Ultramafic lava can be almost twice as hot, ranging from 1600C-2000C (hot enough to melt steel and vaporize a lot of materials). In addition fluoroantimonic acid, Carborane acid, or Magic acid would be much more effective.
