It"s so cold it evaporates when you throw it in the air.

Took awiz on the side of a tree in -50 celcius (Thats like -60 F I think.) And it made a mound of yellow ice. It was pretty awsome.

I live in Northern Alberta. It gets that cold about 40 percent of the year. The water didn`t freeze. Just the steam coming off it did. It`s the same thing when you breath out in cold weather and the moisture in your breath freezws in front of your breath.

Uhhh... No. -40`C and -40`F are the EXACT same temperature so -45`C isn`t that cold in farenheit

When it gets that cold, i tend not to go outside, because i find it hard to breathe...
and because i`ll get frost bite...
that was cool though...
once,
i spat on the ground, and before it hit,
it turned to ice, and bounced off!
true story!

Wow, the amount of bad science in this thread is amazing. Yes, -40 degrees is the same temperature in C and F. Joeyhndc explained it pretty well.

Ok, let`s see if i can break it dow for you guys: -40C and -40F are the same temperature, but the scale of both are different, where 1 C = 1.8 F, so as you go further away from the -40 line, the difference becomes greater and greater. For example, look at the difference between 32F and 0C, and compare it to the difference between 212F and 100C. Both are the same temperature in their respective scales, but the difference is way higher at boiling point because it`s further away from the -40 point.

"does someone want to explain to me the chemistry that allows something to evaporate by become colder?"

THe process quite easy when it is cold enough outside something with freeze because heat always goes from a hot surface to a colder one.The process of where the water freezes and evaporate is sublimation which is where a solid goes from being solid to a gas just because it is very cold.You can try this out if you leave ice cubes in your freezer long enough.

°C = ( °F - 32 ) / 1.8

(-40°F - 32) / 1.8 = -72 / 1.8 = -40°C

Water H2O is the only subtance on earth that can be liquid, gas, or solid without having to change the molecular structure. Or so someone told me.

^^^

well it has to change its molecular structure at some point or it cant become any of those things. You mean without changing its properties. you dont have to add anything to water for it to become a solid liquid or gas :)

We had a huge blizzard here in Saskatoon and then afterwards it went to -45`C so there was no school because the roads were bad and it was freezing out but anyways to the clip. It didn`t really look like it frooze its more like steam (Kind of when you breath) so it LOOKED like it frooze in midair but it really didn`t.

It`s climate change, people... the weather in England so far in January has been the warmest on record EVER since records began in 1639. on average the night temperature has been 12.6 degrees, compared with an average night temperature of only 12 degrees in the middle of JULY LAST YEAR!!!

"No substance changes it`s molecular structrure when it changes freezes, melts, or evaporates.

Structure and position is the same thing. But you are somewhat right where I was wrong. Water is one of the only substances that has a solid less dense than it`s liquid form.

That`s sweet. The water doesn`t evaporate though it just freezes. And the temp. only has to be below zero for it to happen. I`ve tried it before where I live.

That looks cool, seen it before though. but erm...it doesn`t evaporate, it simply freezes instantly. this wouldn`t happen with cold water. hot water cools down much faster than cold water, strangely enough. and did you know an iceberg is never salt? when water freezes, the structure forces out anything soluted in it.

I live in Alaska and my husband is a commercial fisherman. He`s told me (a long time ago) about times on the boat, when its been so cold, when they take the old coffee and toss it over board, the same thing happens. Never seen it first hand, but now I`ll have to try it, because it has been that cold here. In fact, it was 12 degrees this afternoon!
