YouTuber Pours Liquid Nitrogen Directly Into The Ocean

Does the ocean freeze after having three liters of liquid nitrogen poured in it?

YouTuber The Action Lab attempted to pour liquid nitrogen into the ocean to see if it would freeze. Liquid nitrogen is nitrogen in a liquid state at an extremely low temperature. 

It is a cryogenic fluid that can cause rapid freezing on contact with living tissue. The Action Lab poured three liters in the beach to see if it could freeze a big chunk of the ocean.

He started by testing on the wet sand and then moved into the beach's waters. We won't tell you what happened except that there was a really cool effect.

He then took the experiment back to his home where he used two cameras to really illustrate the effect of liquid nitrogen on water. He then explained about the gaseous protective effect of liquid nitrogen.


The whole video is fun and entertaining and as always The Action Lab's straightforward useful explanations leave no question unanswered.
