New video where I show the experiment “Imploding soda can”

Imploding soda cans – Experiment

This experiment should only be done by adults!

Bowl with cold water
Cooking tongs
Aluminium soda can
Hot plate

Prepare the cold water. Add a little bit of water in the can. Put it on the hot plate. When it’s boiling, use the cooking tongs to flip over the can with the opening into the cold water. Now the can will implode and left is the crushed soda can. Remember to be careful.

When boiling water in the aluminum can the air inside will be replaced with vapor. When the vapor gets in contact with cold water it will quickly transform into water, and this creates a vacuum that causes the can to crush.
