Fun to do when it is -20 below zero: Watch hot water vaporize into the cold air

Here is a fun thing you can do when the temp is -20 degrees! Watch hot water vaporize outside (make sure you don’t hit anyone with your hot water). Here Sparky did a great job displaying how the hot water vaporizes when it 20 below zero outside.    Reblogged from “Poof! There it Goes—Instant Water Vaporization at Minus 20

1. Wait until the ambient air temperature is Minus 20 F or colder.
2. Boil water on the stove and pour it in an insulated coffee mug. (Put in a thermos if you need to travel to a site)
3. Run outside and pour some into a smaller cup (1/2 cup or 1 cup measuring cup works great)
4. Launch the water into the air (up, but not over your head!…There will still be some droplets coming down)
5. Watch in awe.

It’s cold outside, but that won’t stop the fun! All you need is some hot water and a squirt gun and, voila! You’ve got a steam gun.

“Woke up to a balmy -41C this morning in South Porcupine, ON. Thought I’d share what happens when you mix boiling water and a water gun and take it outside for a few shots,” wrote YouTube user chrisgsauce.

Good idea. In the two days since it was posted, the video has been viewed more than a million times! If you do this, be sure to be careful of the hot water or melting a squirt gun. The maker used boiling water and can be seen wearing oven mitts. —Sean McCoy Reblogged from
