What Happens To Liquid Nitrogen In A Vacuum?

Liquid nitrogen is certainly incredible. It has a boiling temperature of -196 degrees Celsius, so it must be reserved extremely cold in order to occur as a liquid. In a vacuum compartment, the condensed pressure lets the nitrogen to boil more rapidly. Though, the evaporation procedure cools down the residual nitrogen, permitting it to exist as a liquid. When the temperature is goes down to -210 degrees Celsius, nitrogen will freeze and convert to a solid that looks like glass.

The solid nitrogen then efforts to force itself into a further tightly-packed arrangement, and as the atoms initiate the chain reaction of reorganizing themselves, it produces flakes of snow that get shed off in the procedure. Seeing solid nitrogen is actually uncommon, and seeing nitrogen snow is extremely incredible. Watch this video by ChefSteps:
