Supercooled water. That's pretty cool. Supercooled water freezes on contact with ice.. Looks like its time to explain this again... This is not supercooled water, this is a supersaturated liquid which crystallizes in contact with other crystals an supercool supercooled water science Ice

Hello Fellow FJ'ers! I have just formulated a bucket list and on it is to get to lv. -400. I understand this is a difficult task and quite a feat, and instead of trolling for the dislikes, I would like to request it kindly. So, if you wouldn't mind taking 0.2 seconds out of your (im sure) busy lives, could you please dislike this? Thanks

Looks like its time to explain this again...

This is not supercooled water, this is a supersaturated liquid which crystallizes in contact with other crystals and create a slurry with crystals.

If it were ice, the structure would be rigid, and we can clearly see that this is in fact a slurry.

... probably a scientologist...

also I remember doing a ton of supersaturation experiments back in highschool chem, one of my favorite classes!

You know this would be a pretty bad ass way to serve up frozen mix drinks. It would be that little flourish for showmanship.  I doubt it would be practical since I don't know what all entails about super-cooling water. But yeah imagine like a margarita thats liquid till it hits the glass? Pretty awesome!

Alcohol has a very hard time freezing, meaning it would only work for virgin drinks, and even then any particulates or impurities in the water could set it off long before you pour it, so unfortunately, this is impossible with current technology/knowledge

I believe it freezes on any contact and not jsut contact with ice.

The trick is, water needs to make crystals to become ice. If it's colder, you need less water for 1 crystal. If it contacts anything where it can crystalize, it will freeze immediately completely
