There is a popular youtube video of some metal beads being thrown out of a flask, literally hovering out of the container
My question is how detailed a physical explanation of this phenomenon we have?
Question: More precisely, if we used the best available mechanical physics simulator software, and we tried to simulate this behavior, would the software be able to reproduce the effect or not? My guess is not but I would like to know why not.
Or do we have to content ourselves only with handwaved explanations? I am from the school of thought that you don't understand physics until you have a reasonable certainty that you can reproduce the physics in a computer.
