How To: Create an Explosion with Liquid Nitrogen and a Bottle

Create an Explosion with Liquid Nitrogen and a Bottle

Try out this science experiment... demonstrate pressure and volume. Watch this video tutorial to learn how to create an explosion with liquid nitrogen and a plastic bottle. See the demonstration of the exploding reaction of the pressure build up in the bottle.

Liquid nitrogen is sealed into a plastic bottle. As the liquid nitrogen changes to a gas it expands, increasing the volume. An increase in volume results in an increase in pressure. Eventually, the pressure becomes too great and the bottle explodes. This is an easy science experiment you can do right at home, but be careful, it's dangerous. Take safety precautions.
