If I am correct that is not water but Cyclohexane. ;)

That's pretty amazing.

It's not ice but precipitation.

There is a pump connected to that glasscontainer, the pressure is lowered and the solvent is evaporating.

You can ofter see ice during the process but it is on the outside of the glass due to the energy required for the evaporation.

#1 it can be any solvent water, cyclohexane, aceton, etc etc

If you hate the rating system (like me), then just log out, and you can se the ratings. And stop rating comments. If we stand together we can change Snotr back :-)

#7 Thank you Zoidberg for the idea of logging out and not voting.

How perverted is it that non-users see the ratings but users don't? I'll be logging off now ... perhaps to return when the ratings work again.

So long and thanks for the fish!

They get the water to its "triple point". It's the thermodynamic equilibrium point where it can exist as solid liquid and gas at the same time. Then they shift the point a little and watch all the phase transformations.
You can do it with cyclohexane too I suppose you just need to adjust the pressure and temperature for it's triple point. Although some stuff require quite extreme conditions like graphite 4,765 K (4,492 °C)10,132 kPa (100.00 atm).

#4 #6 #7 We will switch back to the old system.
