    As we know table salt is made of NaCl so when you heat it up the Cl evaporators and turns in to just Na and as we know is highly reactive in water

    Entertaining video. Only one problem with your conclusion. Sodium will react in water even if it isn't molten. Also, your comment about the sodium not being able to get into the water fast enough: Sodium is less dense than water. It floats, while it's combusting.

    I'm REALLY curious to see what happens if you super cool the water? Wither just ice, or dry ice until the water is SUPER cold. Then for safety maybe a longer stick lmo

    I think it is exploding because when you heat the salt up that much, it breaks the Na-Cl bonds and makes it go into a high energy state. when it is dropped into the cool water, it instantly cools down and reforms the crystal structure. Since this crystal state is much more stable than the molten state and because of how fast the reaction happens, it releases a ton of energy at once.

    how can you say it's physical reaction and not chemical reaction if there are different mediums that time which is liquid, space and air. You forgotten to test the CO2 Produced after the explosion, you need to take account the whole environment not just water as there are chemicals produced that doesn't always go together or stay with water.

    4:03 and this is why the flash gets hits by explosions.
    and why its bullshit when the force of an explosion is shown to move at the same speed as a person in flashtime

    • Apentogo

      @Benedict Manubag true
      but im talking about when the flash goes into flash time and you see the explosion move at the same speed as the people trying to run away

  • Nathan Spilak
    Nathan Spilak 6 days ago

    Ok, I'm not the best at chemistry, but I have a theory on why it combusts, When the NaCl (Sodium Chloride) is melted, when it touches the H2o (Water) the Sodium Chloride reacts with the water as it should, but it is at a temp of 801°C causes the water to get so hot, that it wants to expand and causes the glass to shader.
    If I am wrong feel free to correct me, I will then either remove this comment or correct it. Have a good day!😁

  • aaqib hussein
    aaqib hussein 6 days ago +11

    NaCl can't change pH of water cuz this salt can't be hydroysed. It is salt of strong acid and strong base. Salts of weak acid weak base or weak acid strong base do change pH. Cuz their weaker part will hydrolyse and utilise Ions water eventually changing pH

    • COOL TM
      COOL TM Day ago

      No, its just that water is polar so it dissolves the ionic salt. It can't change the pH because that means either the OH- or H+ amount is changing. Dissolving is simply separating salt into Na+ or Cl+ not separating the water, so it wouldn't change the pH.
      I think it is exploding because when you heat the salt up that much, it breaks the Na-Cl bonds and makes it go into a high energy state. when it is dropped into the cool water, it instantly cools down and reforms the crystal structure. Since this crystal state is much more stable than the molten state and because of how fast the reaction happens, it releases a ton of energy at once.
