People say when your knuckles crack, it’s caused by the bubbles between your joints. Instead, they persist in joints for as much as 20 minutes after cracking. Bubbles do not cause the noise, the formation possibly could. Since it wasn’t clear how bubbles caused a large noise, scientists took a “crack” in this case. The scientists explained their new theory and simulated a partial bubble collapse. Not only it explained the frequency of sound/volume, it also explained why bubbles can stick around long after a knuckle crack.
