How to Instantly Freeze Soda





Introduction: How to Instantly Freeze Soda

This works with any carbonated beverage . Take your beverage and cool it down to a temperature around 20F or -7C.Either the freezer or outside if it is cold enough. When opened it will freeze instantly.

The reason:
This demonstrates the principle of freezing point depression. Pure water at 1 atm will freeze at 0C or 32F. When something is dissolved in it the freezing point drops to a lower temperature. This is why when roads are salted there are puddles even though the temperature is below freezing. The more salt the lower the temperature must go before it freezes. When you open the bottle it does the opposite. The freezing point goes from (a guess) -10C to around 0C when the CO2 leaves the solution (the concentration decrease). Since the soda is at -7C it freezes instantly when the CO2 leaves the solution.

    Quite nice dude.....

    you didn't get it cold enof I've seen seltzer freeze to solid within to seconds just by compressing and releasing the bottle

    but how do you let it go to a temperature of 20F. Or do we put in a small chunk of dry ice.

    please... quit trying to get more money by posting on this site... if you want to write a set of instructions on how to do it, GREAT.... but viral videos belong elsewhere on the web(like metacafe, where your video is hosted)

    You should try reading sometime. The instructions are there. Go outside once and a while.

    yes they are! but they are not quite ready, add a few more details

    OOOOOH, BURN! NICE ONE! I don't know why he said that, your videos are great, this is cool. I have to agree with ironsmiter that you should post an Instructable too, but this is great stuff, keep it up!
