Introduction: HOT ICE

Hello! Today I have for you a wonderful experiment "hot ice". This experiment can be repeated by anyone!
We need the vinegar (70%) and baking soda.

Mix 1 kilogram of vinegar, 978 grams of baking soda and 200 grams of water. We can observe how carbon dioxide is released!

A few hours later, we got the sodium acetate trihydrate.

We need melt the sodium acetate trihydrate in a pan.

We have obtained a clear liquid.

Put the solution in a bucket of cold water and cover with a lid.

Even a small crystal of sodium acetate is able to start the crystallization process in the cooled solution.

    Чего такая кастрюля страшная? ))

    Im confused. What exactly does this do?

    I did this few years ago.

    Where could you get 70% vinegar? In my country 40% is the strongest you can get in shops, and vinegars above 30% are really rare.

    He didn't mean 70% concentration. He just didn't explain it well. It's just regular 5% vinegar.

    That's a very impressive video. This stuff gets quite hot. Doesn't it burn your hand?

    What video I see no video and I don't see any instructions just a off I can't load cos I'm not on a device that can't open them

    there is nothing telling me how to do this.

    Nothing? ...You mean besides the step by step instructions in the video, and the ones in the description?
