This is a very fascinating video about the┬áLeidenfrost Effect, a phenomenon that occurs when a liquid is dropped onto a surface that is hotter than the liquid’s boiling point which causes the liquid to form a protective surface around it allowing it to glide/move smoothly across the surface. In this case, researchers have begun to […]

Check this out because it’s crazy. Mythbusters melted several bricks of pure lead and tested a scientific phenomenon known as the Leidenfrost effect, where a liquid that comes in contact with a mass that is significantly above that object’s boiling point will cause the liquid to form an insulating vapor layer that will protect it […]
