A demonstration of supercooled water 'snap freezing'. When water is supercooled it remains liquid below it's normal freezing point. Shaking it gently can activate the freezing process.
Similar to the demonstration of Supercooled Water, but this time with beer.
|Spraying hot water at -20 degrees Fahrenheit||
When you squirt boiling water at -20 degrees Fahrenheit (-29 degrees Celsius) it instantly turns into snow (flash frozen).
|Sodium Acetate Sculptures (Hot Ice)||
This experiment demonstrates instant crystallization in a supersaturated solution of Sodium Acetate and water. A second demonstration shows how to make ice sculptures (or pillars) with Sodium Acetate.
