This is a recipe for homemade ‘hot ice’ that mimicks the sodium acetate one but only requires simple ingredients!
In this video you will see how to make hot ice at home. Sodium acetate or hot ice is an amazing chemical you can prepare yourself from baking soda and vinegar. You can cool a solution of sodium acetate below its melting point and then cause the liquid to crystallize.
The crystallization is an exothermic process, so the resulting ice is hot. Solidification occurs so quickly you can form sculptures as you pour the hot ice.
The science experiment uses just 2 ingredients that you probably have on hand. It’s the perfect addition to our Super Cool Science Kit!
