Take a Can or Bottle of Beer and place it in a Freezer sideways...it will crack open. Place a Microwavable Cup of water in a Microwave and place the Microwave on high for 5 minutes. The Water will not boil...drop a single grain of sand into the cup and the Cup of Water will literally EXPLODE!

When Water is placed in a Bottle that has settled the water into releasing any air bubbles plus the Plastic Bottle is ridged such as this one...the Water will not freeze until the air at the top is forced to travel through the Water...it begins to freeze...the freezing can be hastened by the bottles design although there is a correleation to Bottle Design and tem. at which water will eventually freeze.

Tap water will not do the explosion trick, for it to "explode" it needs to be near pure water with no minerals etc.


needs to be distilled water... that's why we always used distilled water in the labs

It doesn't need to be distilled, although distilled water will work better. The water you buy at the store that they call "purified" (usually through reverse osmosis) can give you good results, and that water has had minerals added to it for taste after it had been purified. Therefore, "purified water" usually contains minerals, and thus is not as pure as distilled water.

They key is to have a smooth container and pure-to-relatively-pure water (and, yes -- the more pure the better). The minerals in lesser-than-pure water and/or the rough edges or corners of a less-than-smooth container will serve as nucleation sites for crystallization -- i.e. places on which ice crystals can form and grow. Without these nucleation sites, the crystals won't grow.

Once a supercooled bottle of liquid water is disturbed by shaking it, the disturbance can create nucleation sites on with the ice crystals form.

There you go! And that is the reason. For water to freeze it needs certain conditions to be present in the container. I am a diver and I have dove areas where the water temp. was below 27 degrees...more than enough of a difference to overcome Ocean Salinity. Yet...the water is not frozen. Split Infinity

The ingredients in Nestles Pure Life water( as used in the video).
Q: What minerals are used for Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water enhanced with minerals for taste? A: We selected a unique blend of minerals that deliver a great taste – Calcium Chloride, Sodium Bicarbonate and Magnesium Sulfate.
Why would you put baking soda(Sodium Bicarbonate)in the water?

OK, someone explain how this happens !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The frozen water bottle..A MUST WATCH

Folks, this is really interesting. Don't know why this happens.....do you??



must have something to do with the pressure in the bottle...higher pressure = less solidity

I was gonna say that as well, but for that to work it would've have to have been really close to the freezing point initially for the change in pressure to cause it to form ice. Guy must've had a pretty damn cold bottle of water to allow for the change in the freezing point from the increased pressure due to him smacking the bottle just slightly like he did.

It was below the freezing point -- supercooled, but still liquid.

Purified or distilled water can do that if in a smooth container and is not disrupted. With little or no impurities in the water, and in a smooth bottle, there is no place for ice crystals to begin growing (called "nucleation") so ice crystals don't grow -- and the below freezing water stays liquid.

When that water is shaken, the sloshing around of the molecules allows for crystal nucleation, at the water begins to form ice crystals.

what i don't get is why the guy in the video didn't research what you've just explained.. and then make an educational video about it... instead he takes the "oooh mysterious magic" path .. for paranormal sensationalism?
