but "mcssls" could be right, it does appear to just be the steam carrying the glow

@Boredyeti have you ever seen metal catch fire? cause i have, fire is just the release of photons from atoms of the surrounding gas becoming less excited. you can see metal catch fire all of the time, my dad could make metal spark a flame with an arch welder.

@MildCorma you're a drating tool. i already told you earlier that i didn't copy wiki, and when i checked the wikipedia page, there were no similarities besides the basic idea i was getting across. and even if i did copy past wikipedia, that would make me right? so stfu and go troll someone else. you dont know wtf you're talking about. you're just a child with a keyboard.

maybe just glass and a light under it?

@revolutionz

clearly, you are not a physics student if you actually copy paste wikipedia word for word... nice going, especially as your second year should have probably contained some modules on semi conductors and magnetic properties, so copy pasting wikipedia wouldn't be required. YOU GO INTERNET SCIENCE HERO!

@thedaveman

No mate it's basically a demonstration of how induction heating works in that it will only heat metal and not non-metallic objects.

So I'm guessing the ice starts to sublimate but I don't know how it glows. I'm guessing that the magnetic flux running through the ice cube causes the electrons in the water molecule to become excited in an elevated state then emit light when the electrons drop back down to their lower state. Two things are happening. 1. Magnetic flux through the cube and an increase in temperature. I thought that the increase in temperature came from the number of coils. Since there are only a few coils there wasn't that great of a temperature increase but a great magnetic flux through the cube. I could be wrong, but this is my guess. Do you agree or disagree with this comment? Why or why not. I've never really understood the link between induction heaters and their magnetic flux.

it's not a flame, it's steam carrying the glow of the cube

For the record - i never said that it was the ice burning. I was just saying that the induction coil, built that way, would have a hard time aiming at something below its area of effectiveness, which in this case, would be below the coil.

Sure, I may be wrong, but my real offense was at DrProfessor calling someone an idiot with almost no provocation.

AGAIN - the metal is very likely INSIDE the ice, INSIDE the coil.

@Revolutioniz If there's something under the ice, exactly HOW is the induction coil supposed to heat it? it's kind of inefficient that way isn't it?

WELL THAT HEATING IS USELESS!!!

IT DOESN'T EVEN MELT ICE CUBES!!!

@deviros you're so wrong, there is a piece of metal centered under/in the ice that heats up and turns red, glowing light is just passing through the ice. hte point of induction heating is using magnetism, and containing hte heat.

why do so many people here spot out bullpoo without actually knowing if they're right? you're on the internet, if you're going to comment about something, it's not hard to drating search it. instead of misinforming people..

@DrProfessor:

Uh, no, there's nothing under or behind the ice getting hot. There may be something IN the ice, but the point of induction heating is that the heating element doesn't get hot, and doesn't glow.

@thehitcher - Is that a burner inside of a burner???

That's not the ice getting red hot or catching fire. Those are things under and/or behind the ice getting red hot and emitting flames, which you can see through the ice because IT'S F*CKING CLEAR YOU DOLT.

Idiots. Ice doesnt burn. Water doesnt burn either. It just goes into a gaseous state. What you are seeing is the vapor with an orange color from the coils.

This is impossible. My guess as a simple undergrad student is that there's a piece of metal hidden behind the ice, which is what gets heated and shines on, and also volatilizes the ice.

Huh, and I thought my wife was the only one who could burn water.
