Georgia: We often hear the saying that a problem can be solved at the click of a button, but according to scientific research, this is also the fastest process performed by the human body.
Georgia Tech student Raghio Acharya and others conducted the study, which was published in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface. In this study, experts from the Georgia Institute of Technology have tried to understand the process of clicking and have rediscovered its physics.
According to research, the process of clicking is considered to be so accelerated that the clicking thumb touches the palm in just seven milliseconds, which is faster than blinking.
According to experts, the friction between the outer skin of the finger and the thumb produces a clicking sound, but the speed of rotation in this process is even faster than that of the baseball batsman himself. This observation will help to improve the prosthetic hands and arms. In this way, they will be closer to human hands.
Saad Bhamla, a scientist involved in the research, said that the research also reflects everyday science and human curiosity, which opens up new avenues of discovery.
According to experts, the process of clicking is very fast and amazing in which a person collects energy and releases it immediately and thus the sound of clicking comes.
Scientists have seen and understood the process of clicking through ultra-fast imaging, automated image processing, dynamic force sensors and other technologies. In addition, to understand the friction of the fingers, plastic and metal were also applied on them.
Experts note that under normal conditions the rotational velocity is 7800 degrees per second and the rotational acceleration is 1.6 million degrees per square second. That is, in just seven milliseconds, the thumb slips and falls on the palm. According to scientists, this process will pave the way for further research and technology.
