Main Question or Discussion Point
I can't seem to get this to work.
Notice that they are in a freezer locker. The end of the video is edited to time-lapse it so that the hour it takes to freeze the glass looks like it happens in a few seconds.I can't seem to get this to work.
I have been known to be blunt more often than not, especially when the perfect phrase has already been coined!That is exactly what I had been considering saying. (I refrained out of conisderation for the OP.)
I do not claim to know how this works, but I have experienced this accidentally before.Real?
Good theories. However when I took the bottle out of the freezer it was completely clear and sloshed in the bottle as I took it out like a liquid. Then crystallized within a few seconds right before my eyes.perhaps?
Yup. Not uncommon. It's called supercooling.I put some bottles in the freezer, when I looked later one was frozen but the other was still completely liquid. When I took the liquid one out of the freezer, right before my eyes, it froze solid in a few seconds.
Also on a morning when it was just at freezing outside I found liquid dew on my windshield I turned on the windshield wipers and as soon as they started moving the dew turned to ice instantly.
Can anyone explain how what I experienced works?
There is no relevance. Like superheating of water, the issue is the water falling below freezing (or past boiling) without nucleation sites for bubbles or crystals to form. You must live in a very cold place, or have a VERY powerful freezer.Excellent! Thank You!
So that could explain the video.
But I still do not see the relevance of the straw and fire.
