smoke rings trick

Science Hobbyist utilizes the following visualization to make sense of what’s happening with a smoke ring, which is why we see it twist backward in all the vape videos out there:

Because air does have friction, the outer service moves backward while the inner stream moves forward.
Now check it out in motion, and in slow motion:

Explanations regarding the science of smoke rings might confuse you with complicated talk of “vortices” and “fluid dynamics,” but the more simple explanation has everything to do with smoke itself, which is a collection of tiny solid, liquid, and gas particles.
Face it: All your coolest friends are really good at vape tricks, and you can’t even manage a single ring. You’re sitting there blowing smoke out both ends wondering how the heck this stuff even happens. Is it the way you curl your tongue? The way your purse your lips? How did Bilbo make it look so easy in Fellowship of the Ring?
According to Science Hobbyist, on average no air is actually moving as the smoke ring appears to move through the air. Anything that moves through the air has to push air out of the way, including other air or smoke. In frictionless air, a smoke ring might never lose it shape, but vaping in such conditions is pretty much impossible.
When someone propels smoke out of their mouth in that oh so special way, they’re creating a central point of pressure that moves forward, pushing the denser visible parts of the smoke outward to form the circle. Momentum continues to pull everything forward until other air interrupts the flow or the temperature of the smoke moves close enough to room temperature that the ring itself dissolves.
Don’t exhale. Less tongue. Your mouth is now a vortex cannon.

GQ once broke down the Vape God’s own method like this: “an opaque, well-formed O requires a sharp, percussive cough that emanates from deep within your diaphragm, like a kick pedal hitting a drum.” Part of the trick is to pull your tongue back and keep the tip down, to cradle the blast of air that you’ll shoot out.

Don’t exhale. Less tongue. Your mouth is now a vortex cannon.

Applying a spin when blowing smoke rings will keep them in shape for much longer than when you don’t. If you just blow vapor in the shape of an “o” without any spin, the “o” will dissipate before it even gets formed.

How windy is the environment where you are vaping. Even a slight draft is enough to prevent you from producing smoke rings. So ensure that you are in a calm environment with light or no movement of air before you try to blow smoke rings.
If the vapor you inhale is not enough, there is no way you will make smoke rings. This is because the smoke rings are made of lots of vapor. So when there isn’t enough vapor, there won’t be any smoke rings to produce.

Getting the right form or the right “O” shape of your mouth involves flattening your lips against your teeth, and not puckering them too much or curling them inward. You won’t be able to blow smoke rings if you are not able to assume this form.
How long have you practiced. Only dragons are supposed to be born with the ability to blow fire and smoke rings. Since you are not one, you should practice the right technique and form, time and time again.
As you get better at vaping, you should be able to work what works for you.
Blowing smoke rings with the vapors from your vape pen can be fun especially when you want to show off like other vapers. However not everyone has such luck with blowing smoke rings. Here are five reasons why you or your friends may find smoke rings elusive.
Since your repertoire of trick is tied to your vape’s cloud production, your vape device should be one that properly balances power supply, output, and airflow.

However these unregulated mods require an intricate knowledge of proper battery care that is readily available to regular vapers. For those who prefer regulated mods, sub-ohm tank are the best bets.
