Incredible Science | Orbeez in a Frying Pan! Leidenfrost Effect with Polymer Balls
I placed Orbeez in a frying pan and turned on the fire! I wanted to see what would happen because I heard they go crazy and bounce for a really long long time and make a crazy noise! That’s EXACTLY what happened! It bounces around and doesn’t melt or burn because of the LEIDENFROST effect… The Leidenfrost effect is a physical phenomenon. In the Leidenfrost effect, a liquid…in this case the orbeez outer surface that has water…creates a vapor of steam or gas because the hot pan vaporizes it and that layer of steam allows the Orbeez to bounce around instead of touching the pan!
