Canada is freezing in cold with temperature in some regions being -29 degree Celsius. The country has become so cold that even penguins had to take shelter. Meanwhile, in the freezing weather, stunning pictures and videos of freezing bubbles, snow-covered houses, frozen rivers and waterfalls are all going viral on the internet. And the latest to be added to the list is the mesmerising scientific experiment of hot water freezing in the cold. The scientific theory called the Mpemba effect has taken the internet by storm with people throwing hot water into the air in freezing temperature which transforms into a snow cloud mid-air.
Video of a YouTuber named Viva Frei from Canada conducting the experiment in -29 degree Celsius caught the attention of social media users and is now viral on the internet. Mpemba effect, named after Erasto Batholomeo Mpemba is an observation that in some circumstances, warm water can freeze faster than cold water. The temperature in Canada’s capital Toronto slipped to -11 degree Celsius and other parts touched -22 degree Celsius.
Here is the video:
After the YouTuber, many social media users tried the experiment resulting in stunning images. Check out some stunning images of the experiment here:
