We all know that ice is supposed to be cold, but can we use science to make ‘hot ice’? Of course!

Sodium acetate is a usually a crystalized powder solution but once it is boiled down with water, it becomes a liquid. If you pack the with a large amount of sodium acetate, you supersaturate the solution. 

The freezing point of sodium acetate is 136.4◦ F ( 58◦ C), so when you leave the solution to cool it will actually supercool which is freezing without solidification or crystallization. 

In the gif, a material with a bit of solid sodium acetate (in its crystal powder form) activates the the supercooled solution and triggers a crystallization! What’s really cool is that this process of crystallization releases heat, so it becomes extremely hot while also being frozen!

Stay Safe!
