Re: Random Facts.
I didn't need to give evidence… I thought it was obvious.
yes, not all water will freeze at 0°C, this is true. but in normal circumstances, water WILL freeze at 0°C.
Killer – the link you posted did not back up your point at all. like I said, it wasn't water at all! it's a Sodium acetate solution. You can read up on it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_acetate
and view it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uy6eKm8IRdI
the exothermic reaction, which means the solution instantly freezes when it comes into contact with a warm or a hot surface. it may look like ice, but in fact it gives out a lot of heat.
But if I'm guessing right, I think you're talking about Supercooling:
in which case, it doesn't have much to do with dirt, but rather not allowing the water to crystallize. in other words, you do not allow the water to have the nesacary nuclei in order to start the freezing process. this is also called nucelation:
Now, considering you said that “Water doesn't actually freeze”, you still end up wrong because water DOES freeze. there is no denying it.
If say, you rephrased it to something like “Water needs a seeded nucleus to start the freezing reaction”, then that would be true.
so you're right, but you're also wrong. Stop crying to the world and accept that sometimes everyone, including yourself, is going to be wrong about something.
So now we all have a rather in-depth knowledge about water, sodium accetate, supercooling, and ice formation. can we move on now?
