Paper Abstract

We show bubbles investigated with videography and multiple colour LED flash illumination. The short flashes show the propagation and development of the shape of the bubbles. The long flashes make the velocity vector of the bubbles directly visible and allow easy investigation of the unstable movement. If bubbles are used to reduce friction of ships, then it is effective to spread the gas volume over lots of micro bubbles. Another experiment is the investigation of the noise of a bass reflex loud-speaker. The visualisation of air flow shows linear behaviour at low power and a previously unknown effect at high power - continuous streaming of air in the bass reflex tube.
