The Leidenfrost Effect Makes Water Flow Uphill And It’s So Completely Fascinating

Here’s a really cool video created by the people over at Science Friday about what’s known as the Leidenfrost Effect.

Where water dropped on an extremely hot surface is capable of floating instead of immediately evaporating.

While studying the bizarre effect, physicists at the University of Bath realized that not only does the water float, but under the right conditions and temperatures it can actually climb upward.




Pretty cool huh?! Let us know what you think in the comment section below and don’t forget to give this a share on Facebook before you go. (h/t The Awesomer)
