How To: Boil Water Using Ice

Boil Water Using Ice

Ice in placed on a sealed FLASK and the water inside starts to boil.

Great science fair experiment.
1. Find a FLASK (Something that won't crank due to pressure)
2. Boil water and add it to the flask
3. Seal it and invert the FLASK
4. Place an ice cube or two on top.
5. The condensing of the gas above the water from the ice cubes causes the water to boil

NOTE - after the FLASK and water cool to room temperature the heat from your hand should make it start to boil again.

Only try this under adult supervision.

IN THIS PROCEDURE U ALREADY HAVE BOILED WATER. WHY TO BOIL IT AGAIN?

Ever hear of "YOUTUBE" you can share videos without users needing to download 50 MB of apple spy-ware.

I spend 10min "wonderhowto" watch this video!!!!!!

The video was from Metacafe, and for some reason it just didn't want to work. I've switched it out for the YouTube version from Kent Chemistry. Should play fine now.
