If You’re Happy and You Know It, Let Vsauce Explain Why We Clap Our Hands

Okay, but why do we slow clap?

When we’re excited or want to show appreciation we slap our hands together to make a dull repetitive sound, but why? The reasons we clap are varied, and the science of clapping is more complex than you might think. Thankfully, there’s Vsauce to guide us through it all. Take a few minutes to learn more about clapping than you probably need to know.

Well done, Vsauce. Well done.
