Caption: Three soda straws are placed in a glass. A speaker to the left is set to the exact frequency to excite resonance in the glass: in this case 641.0 Hz. The glass starts to resonate violently and transfers energy to the straws causing them to jump around in the glass. The action was captured with a strobe flashing 90 times a second.
