PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — Here are some fun experiments you can do at in these cold temperatures.
Friday morning, temperatures were below zero in Central Illinois, and Meteorologist Adam Sherwinksi got to work creating some fun.
The first experiment was taking boiling or steaming water and throw it in the air to see it turn to steam or snow. Next, he froze some bubbles.
After dipping the wand in the solution, he watched the bubbles respond to the cold air. It instantly started to freeze.
In warm weather it expands and pops, but not so much in cold temperatures.
Next, he took a plastic, bottle of water and came back later to see how much it froze. Ice started to form not even an hour later, but it wasn’t very dense.
Fpr those at home, he recommends using different containers and putting it in different spots to see how it reacts within the cold environment.
