Does anyone know if the Gage Block physics is now understood?

Why don't you summarize the video?

If it's not worth your time to summarize it, why is it worth my time to watch it?

Go to your local glass store and buy half a dozen pieces of 1/8 inch thick window glass cut into 3x4 inch pieces. Use fine sandpaper to dull the sharp edges. Clean very well. Press and twist them together, they should stick. Similar physics? Glass microscope slides also can be stuck together. Looked at carefully you should see interference fringes. Wet one with water and press and stick together, they seem to stick together better. As you slide the glass past each other notice the change in friction as you increase the force pressing them together, it does not seem to be linear.

See Google search for more info,

From that search,




Come up with experiments that might test the hypothesis of Van der Waals forces.

Really excellent, Stevie. Many thanks. An incentive to learn more about Van der Waals and to calculate the holding force.
