Under certain circumstances, such as low air pressure. Boiling and freezing can occur at the same time…. bet you didn’t know that. The substance that you see in the video is Cyclohexane, a colorless, flammable liquid that smells kind of like detergent. As the liquid starts to boil, high energy molecules evaporate, which then lowers the temperature of the liquid left behind, thus causing it to freeze.
The process repeats itself over and over again. Some people refer to this as the triple point, but it’s actually only near the triple point.
