Incredible moment of cool water immediately freezes when poured from a bottle

Incredible images reveal super-cooled water that freezes immediately when it is poured from a bottle

  • Water normally becomes ice at 0 ° C, but the bottles are exposed to -8 ° F (-22 ° C)
  • A liquid can remain liquid below freezing if it is pure and is cooled slowly
  • This becomes & # 39; hypothermia & # 39; and can be undone by hitting the water firmly

This is the incredible moment when water is turned into solid ice – right away.

Viral images show the substance being poured into a container, changing its shape from a liquid to a solid, without the traditional freezing process.

The effect is the result of a phenomenon called supercooling, whereby water remains liquid under freezing under certain conditions.

Although scientific law seems to defy, it is actually a natural by-product of the purity of water.

The freezing point of water is 0 ° C (-32 ° F). This means that water will normally change from a liquid to a solid when it is cooled to 0 ° C.

However, if the water is pure enough and it is cooled slowly enough, the water can remain liquid even if it is colder than 0 ° C.

Supercooled water does not change into ice because it is too pure to form ice crystals.

Ice crystals need something that can grow to form. Crystals can grow on dots of dust, impurities in the water or on ice itself.

This video, published earlier this month, has been uploaded to YouTube by YouTube fan Lex Luther and has already collected more than 15,000 views.

However, some viewers have doubted its authenticity.

& # 39; That is not water but a supersaturated solution of sodium acetate, & # 39; said a critic. & # 39; It pours extremely well because it is super chilled water. & # 39;

Another simply said & # 39; fake & # 39 ;, to which Luther replied: & # 39; 100% real & # 39 ;.

WHAT IS & # 39; SUPERCOOLING & # 39 ;?

Supercooling is the term given to residual liquid below freezing when it is cooled slowly.

The freezing point of water is 0 ° C (-32 ° F). This means that water will normally change from a liquid to a solid when it is cooled to 0 ° C.

However, if the water is pure enough and it is cooled sufficiently slowly, the water can remain a liquid even if it is colder than 0 ° C.

Supercooled water does not change into ice because it is too pure to form ice crystals.

Ice crystals need something that can grow to form. Crystals can grow on dots of dust, impurities in the water or on ice itself.
