Boiling water instantly turns into a spectacular arc of ICE

Freeze frame! Boiling water instantly turns into a spectacular arc of ICE when it is hurled into the air in sub-zero temperatures

  • Resident in Alberta, 加拿大, throws boiling water over head in circular motion
  • The water immediately turns into an ice cloud as it makes contact with air
  • Mpemba effect is theory hot liquids freeze faster than liquids which begin cold
  • This is the spectacular moment boiling water turned into an ice cloud after it was thrown into the air in sub-zero temperatures.

    Footage captured in Alberta, 加拿大, shows one resident hurl the pot of boiling water over his head in a circular motion in an attempt to test out the Mpemba effect on December 27.

    The water immediately turns into an arc of ice above his head as the man stares in awe.

    After touching the freezing air the boiling water turns to snow and falls to the ground.

    The Mpemba effect is the scientific theory that hot liquids can freeze faster than liquids which begin cold.

    It was named after Erasto Mpemba from Tanzania who noted a hot ice cream mixture froze faster than a cold one during a cookery class he was taking during the 1960s.

    The effect has been noted since the time of Aristotle in Ancient Greece but scientists have struggled to explain why the phenomenon happens.

    在 2016, a team of Singapore scientists said the the effect could be explained by the unique properties of the bonds that hold water together.

    Hydrogen bonds bring individual water molecules into close contact, which triggers natural repulsion between the water molecules and causes the bonds between oxygen and hydrogen atoms to stretch as well as store energy.

    What is the Mpemba effect?

    The Mpemba effect, named after Erasto Mpemba, is the name given to the scientific theory that hot water can freeze faster than the same liquid which begins cold.

    在 2016, a team of Singapore scientists said it was to do with the unique properties of the bonds that hold water together.

    Hydrogen bonds bring individual water molecules into close contact, which triggers natural repulsion between the water molecules and causes the bonds between oxygen and hydrogen atoms to stretch as well as store energy.

    So as the liquid warms, it makes the water molecules sit further apart from each other as the hydrogen bonds stretch.

    When the molecules shrink again and give up their energy, this results in it cooling, which the scientists say means that warm water cools faster than cold water and explains the Mpemba effect.

    The latest scene comes after Environment Canada issued an extreme cold warning for all of Alberta after a blast of Arctic air brought icy temperatures to the region.

    In Edmonton, temperatures of around -40C are expected to continue this week and in Calgary, the current forecast is predicting a wind chill of around –43C.

    Dave Phillips from Environment Canada told CBC News: ‘Extreme cold, brutal cold, there is no other way to describe it.

    在 2018, family blogger David Feriheit from Quebec, 加拿大, took advantage of sub-zero temperatures to explore the Mpemba effect.

    Footage showed Mr Freiheit throwing a huge bucket of boiling water into the air before it turned into ice.

    The video demonstrating the Mpemba effect was filmed in -28C (-18.4F) 温度, and took several attempts to get right.

    他说: ‘I spent the entire day boiling a huge lobster pot of water, running down to the lake and throwing it in the air, trying to get the perfect Mpemba effect.

    ‘I eventually found some red dye and on my last attempt into the setting sun, I achieved Mpemba perfection.
