How to Instantly Freeze Soda

video 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.

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!
He said that because "kentchemistry" videos are hosted at metacafe = $ ....

I was starting to think the same thing, yet didn't post anything. :(

You don't need a slap in the face, with a wet fish to figure out somethign is not right here...

Or perhaps... hmm pfft mm frumppp beep.. SssWooooSshHHH *** *SMACK!!!!* *** SSsPPLLLlATTT!!!!!

Too late.... ;)
Please stop reducing our total I.Q.
the point of videos is that you don't need to post instructions on how to make/do it. and if you look there are rudimentary instructions on how to recreate what you see in the videos
