Here we go! In 3, 2…
[crack] Is anyone shooting any–
[explosion] Hey guys, welcome back!
It’s a beautiful day. And today, we are playing
with something you should absolutely not try at home. I hate to be the one to say that, but it’s absolutely true. Now in our last video,
we tried using dry ice to see if we could make
improvised carbonated drinks at home, and it worked. And I also suggested,
it may not be the best idea to put dry ice in a sealed container. I’m about to show you why… Now today’s experiment was inspired
by a comment from Dotz0cat, who asked if we could try melting dry ice
in a sealed Coke bottle. I think the question here is to see if we can get the dry ice to melt
and hold it in liquid form. And if that really works, can we heat it up
to a supercritical temperature? Now I’m sorry, Dotz0cat,
the answer is absolutely not. But I am still going to go ahead
and do the experiment anyway, just so you can see
what happens if you try. Now I’m going to keep
this experiment fairly simple for you. I’m going to use
an empty 500ml Coke bottle and a handful of dry ice. I’ve crushed this dry ice down
into a powder so it has more surface area. The idea being, it’ll sublimate a little bit quicker. So all we really have to do is find a way
to get our dry ice inside our bottle, cap it off and get very, very far away. Alright guys,
I just smashed up the dry ice. I used funnels, I used my hands.
I used every method possible to try and get the dry ice
into these bottles, and here we are! I filled one bottle up nearly to the top
with dry ice snow. And I filled another bottle up only
about a third of the way full, so we can cap them off
and just observe if there’s any difference as the dry ice starts
to warm up and sublimate. Here we are guys, moment of truth. I’ve got rolls of duct tape here
on the bottoms because as these bottles fill up, they probably are going
to pressurize and swell. And I want them
to be held relatively in place. So let’s go ahead
and put the caps on the top now, seal up nice and tight,
and then get very, very far away. Which bottle is going to explode first? The one with more dry ice
or the one with less? Put your predictions down
in the comments below. It’s hard to tell if the one
on the left is actually swelling up or if it’s just pulling moisture out
of the atmosphere and growing in size from the frost. This could be a really long process. I can see that bottle expanding. It’s almost there. Can’t believe that’s held on so long. But that’s gonna go any second, so I’m getting excited. I’m tired of being so nervous,
ex-explode already! [bottle explodes] Whoa! Oh my goodness,
oh my goodness, oh my goodness. That was amazing. Boom. That was very, very loud. Dude, that was a big explosion! That was massive. Who knows how long that’s gonna take.
[chuckle] The hardest thing about this is, you know, you never know exactly
when it’s gonna go off. Okay, I’m stickin’ my neck out here
for you guys. [chuckling] Let me see if we can get you
a little bit closer there. You can actually see the liquid CO2
in the bottle, and small chunks
of dry ice floating at the top. There’s a small leak in that bottle
which is why it hasn’t exploded yet so, but if you look at the neck there… you should be able to see all the cracks, like that thing is very unstable
and it’s ready to go. Makes me really nervous… being here. Oh you can see the carbon dioxide
still bubbling in there. It’s turning into a gas. I do not want that to go off right now. That would hurt… tremendously. There we go. Yeah! Quick update, guys. The bottle has grown about as big
as it can get without exploding, but there’s a slight leak in it, which means the gas is hissing out
faster than bottle can explode. This a very dangerous situation, because it could theoretically
sit here indefinitely until something pokes it or pushes it
and causes the reaction. So to help catalyze the reaction
and bring it to little safer condition, I went and got a BB gun. Here we go! On 3, 2…
[BB gun fires] A little high, okay. Resettin’. Here we go! In 3, 2… [crack] Is anyone shooting any–
[explosion] Trigger, trigger! That was not me. I did not do that. Whoa.
[laughs] Whoo, doggy! So that was crazy guys.
I went to shoot it with a BB gun and it actually blew up by itself
like seconds before I pulled the trigger. So, even though it had a hiss, it was actually pressurized enough
to self explode and now there are pieces everywhere. And that was loud,
like that’s earplug worthy. You can hear bubbling
and cracking over here, I mean look at this. Look at this piece of plastic, guys. It has almost like melted
and warped, somehow. You can hear it cracking. It’s almost
like it’s got some kind of permanent burn from the CO2? I don’t know. It’s turned to like a styrofoam texture
and it’s got different layers. That’s really interesting.
I haven’t seen this before. The rest of this plastic is clear, but this almost looks like a foam,
a styrofoam of something of that nature… that I can peel off. Look at that. What the heck? What on earth? How do we turn plastic bottles
into styrofoam? I don’t get it, but that’s what happened. That’s crazy. Very, very exciting. Very, very exciting,
and hopefully a lesson learned about why you don’t put dry ice
in soda bottles. Let’s talk about that. So we started this experiment today
to see what would happen if we put dry ice inside of a soda bottle, and screwed the lid on tight. Would the carbon dioxide melt down
into liquid CO2 and if so, could we heat it on an oven
to make it go supercritical? The answer is, “kind of.” Yes, the dry ice did melt down
into liquid CO2 but the problem is, These bottles are only pressure rated
for around 150 to 200psi. Whereas once dry melts, the pressures can increase
to well over 1000psi. So obviously, it’s just a matter of time until your container is going to explode. Now in this case,
the results were surprising. We filled up one bottle almost full
with dry ice, and the other
about a third of the way full. What we found was the bottle,
filled a third of the way with dry ice, exploded first. The reason, I think, that happened, is because as long as you have dry ice
in a solid state, it’s going to keep the liquid cool. But once all the liquid
has completely melted, it can all rise in temperature
and increase the pressure dramatically. So the bottle we filled up
nearly to the top with dry ice, took over 45 minutes longer to explode. And that’s kind of unpredictable
when they’re gonna go off because it all depends
on temperature, humidity, and whether or not
the bottle springs a leak. So to answer your question. Can you put dry ice in a bottle
and have it turn to liquid CO2? The answer is, yes. But should you? Absolutely not! By putting dry ice in a sealed container, you’re essentially making a bomb,
a dry ice bomb as it were. And in most states
and counties these days, dry ice bombs are illegal
for obvious reasons. But what really surprised me
about this experiment is how long it took
for the reaction to take place. How long it took for the bottles
to actually explode. The first bottle took
almost an hour and a half, the second bottle,
almost two and a half hours. Based on all my experiences
working with dry ice, my honest suggestion to you
is please don’t try this at home. You really never know
who you could end up getting hurt. But I’m really glad that you could join me
for this experiment today, so you could observe the power
of the reaction for yourself. And of course, a big thanks to our friend,
Dotz0cat, for suggesting this experiment. You can go ahead
and check your YouTube inbox, I’m sending you 25 bucks. Thanks for joining me
for this experiment guys, and I’ll be looking for you
in the next one. Talk to you then. [crack] Oh… Just broke my funnel. That’s what happens when it cools down
and you smash it too hard. Sorry honey!

    If you guys can make supercritical carbon dioxide, I would like to see what happens when it is suddenly exposed to normal atmospheric pressure. My guess is it would instantly disappear into normal carbon dioxide gas.

    Never make dry ice in a sealed container, especially glass container. It phase to a critical phase by environmental heating, and blow. I tore my eye lid 2 inch in that accident. The glass shattered, the metal clamp holding the glass broke, blood everywhere on my face. The ice was just 5 grams.

    With plastic bottles, is ok i supposed.

    I know I am late to the party, but if I had any idea on it, it would be the dry ice became a liquid (as observed) and became a solvent. Depending on the plastic bottle it has roughly a chemical composition of C10H8O4, when you use extremely low temperatures the process transfers some of the carbon out and the oxygen, creating not only C02 gases but O2 gases as well. My 2 cents a year late.
