Boiling water thrown out of a window... turns to ice crystals in ... - 42F

Awesome and freaky !

I really doubt that. It is highly unlikely that that much thermal energy could be removed from boiling water in that short of time.

I do not think the water is boiling, room temperature at best. But it is smoking because it is still a lot warmer than the outside temperature.

I dont doubt it, have you ever been anywhere where its -42? I know when I worked the oil field, in ND it hit colder then that with windchill, before windchill it was -20, -30, and I remember some locations wed go onto, thered be ruts full of standing water knee deep full of water-by midnight, those ruts would be frozen solid, all the way down and hard enough that you could drive a 80,000 pound semi over the top without leaving a crack. a water bottle froze in a matter of minutes. another time, I was working loading a pickup on a flat bed, -65 with windchill, our noses started running, and the snot froze instantly on air contact. literally, instantly-and the warm air of our breath did nothing to melt it.

That still doesn't explain how the amount of heat from 100 to 0 degree C and heat of transformation could be removed in that short amount of time. I need a mathematical model to be convinced. Water particle surface area and calculation of heat loss in three seconds from 100 to 0 C plus heat of transformation.

Like I said, we do not know for sure what the temperature of the water is. It wasn't bubbling so I can't be sure if it was boiling to begin with.

well, throw it out into cold air, and its moving, which creates wind chill . . .and the thing about boiling water is, it stops bubbling almost instantly once you pull it off the heat source. I dont know the mathematical equations, but I have spent a LOT of time in really cold environments that I do indeed believe it.

Russia works in Celsius not Fahrenheit.....

Do the math.....

I for one am not a nay-sayer, I've always heard that to make ice cubes quicker you fill the tray with hot water.

good point, -42 C is -43.6 F. now, add 32 degrees to that, adn its actually like 70 degrees below freezing.

you are one tough guy, i can't even imagine living in those conditions - i am allergic to cold and severely allergic to freezing!

sunshine and warmth for me thank you! it's hard enough getting through most british winters, although this yr it doesn't seem so bad... love the vid. you can definitely tell, it's real. :)

oh, its not any fun. theres a reason im not up there anymore. But, one learns to deal with it after awhile.

To convert celsius to Farenheit take the Celsius temp times 9/5 and add 32. Like this 100 © times 9 = 900

900/5 = 180 180 + 32 = 212 (F).

Do NOT ask me why I can remember this (which I almost NEVER use), but can't remember the 'address' of Scriptures I use ALL THE TIME!!!

-42C X 9 = -378 -378/5 = -75.6 + 32 = -43.6F

I have pee'd outdoors in -53 farenheit, and can assure you that water at 98.6F, WILL FREEZE before hitting the ground......

I HATE CAMPING IN SNOW!!!!!!

Another way to do the conversion between C and F is to add 40 at the start and subtract it at the end. This works because at -40 degrees, C and F are the same. So:

77 F + 40 = 117

117/9 = 13

13 x 5 = 65

65 - 40 = 25 C

77 F = 25 C

and

40 C + 40 = 80

80/5 = 16

16 x 9 = 144

144 - 40 = 104 F

40 C = 104 F
