1216 Shooting An AK-47 Under Water
Smarter Every Day

Check out this awesome YouTube video from Smarter Every Day where the team shoot an AK-47 underwater and capture what happens at 27,450 frames per second. In this video you'll see a wicked example of cavitation which is the rapid formation and collapse of vapor pockets in a liquid, resulting in oscillating bubbles of gas in the water.
