Amazing speed records
With what speed crashes cork from a bottle of champagne? What is the fastest animal on earth? whether speed may be higher than the speed of light? Today let's talk about some of the amazing speed record.
The biggest rate of animals
The biggest speed in the animal world - 322 km / h. This rate develops peregrine falcon dive at extraction:
of water molecules
When boiling water its molecules are moving at a speed of 650 meters per second.
Nerve impulses in the human body
They move at a speed of approximately 90 meters per second.
The biggest toy train speed of
It is 10 km / h.
in the sport slowest rate of
It was recorded August 12, 1889 - just 1.35 km / h. The sport has been a tug of war.
The flight speed of the golf ball
The next moment after hitting the golf ball its speed instantly develops up to 270 km / h.
When the plane develops speed 1 000 km / h, its length is increased by one centimeter relative to its rest length.
the windiest place on Earth
Commonwealth Bay is officially recognized in the Guinness Book of Records and the Eighth Edition National Geographic Atlas of the most windy places in the world. Moreover - it is located in Antarctica, so forget about the short gusts of wind, then the wind constantly blowing at a speed of 240 km / h.
The most sluggish mammal
He is a three-toed sloth, it moves at a speed of 2 meters per minute.
The biggest rate was recorded in the world
superluminal speed possible? Probably all - even people far from physics, - it is known that the maximum possible speed of movement of material objects, or any signal propagation speed of light in a vacuum. It is denoted by the letter C and is almost 300 thousand kilometers per second; exact value C = 299792458 m / s.
In 2000, Wang Lijun with staff at a research institute in Princeton (USA) carried out the following experiment. Through chamber length of 6 centimeters, filled with cesium vapor was passed laser pulse. The experimental result: the light pulse entering the chamber filled with a cesium vapor, increases its speed to more than 300 times. Thus, the greatest speed ever recorded on our planet, is 310 times more than the speed of light.
The biggest human speed of
The greatest speed ever developed by man, is 39 897 km / h. Her astronauts reached the main module "Apollo 10" at an altitude of 122 km above the surface of the Earth when returning to their home planet.
The biggest speed advancement of the blind driver
The biggest speed advancement of the blind driver - 322.5 kilometers per hour. The driver Hein Wagner (Hein Wagner) accelerated to that speed on the car Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG and has managed to keep this speed for a kilometer. His record Hein Wagner hopes to draw attention to the problems of the blind. His record was officially recognized representatives of the Guinness Book of Records.
Records reading rate
Speed Reading 16-year-old from Kiev Ira Ivachenko - 163,333 words per minute with full mastery of reading. This achievement has been officially registered in the presence of journalists.
Unofficial record reading speed - 416 to 250 words per minute. The record was recorded September 9, 1989 during testing by the Center in the presence of 20 trainees. Record holder - Evgeny Alekseenko. In Kiev Brain Research Center, a special test was prepared for Eugene, who she had been in the presence of a few scientists. I read Eugene 1390 words for one fifth of a second - for the time it takes to blink. The contents of the read Eugene recounts the clock, without losing the smallest details.
Another record speed reading has established a student of the Russian school of Svetlana Arkhipova - 60 000 characters per minute. He is listed in the Guinness Book of Records.

The highest printing speed of
The biggest printing speed - 2600 A4 pages per minute. The record belongs to the printer Inkjet Web Press from Hewlett-Packard Company. It is worth noting that while the cost per print is not more than 1 cent.
The highest speed drumming
Record the highest speed on the game on the drum was installed October 24, 1991 the famous English musician Rory Blackwell (Rori Blackwell). The skill he demonstrated in the park Finleyk County Devon (UK). In one minute the same drum it produced 3720 strikes rods 60 seconds. That is 62 beats per second! At that time, Rory Blackwell, was already 58 years old.
Speed Flying champagne corks
The German physicist Friedrich Balk from the Technical University of Clausthal Lower Saxony calculated the speed of flight of the cork a bottle of champagne. With photovoltaic devices and acoustic scientist found that cork speed reaches 40 km / h, altitude - up to 12 meters. Theoretically plug speed can reach 100 km / h, but this is possible only in bottles, which had a certain time under direct sunlight and were well shaken before opening.
