    I have an experiment for you king of random.
    I really like your videos and I have seen you help ppl with curiosity
    I wanted you to do this small experiment.
    Take three jars
    Label them 1,2,3
    One should be able to handle high pressure and other low pressure and the other one a normal one.
    Put water in those containers and then pressurize, vaccumize(if that's a word) and then put all the three containers in the freezer.
    Then which one freezes faster and which one slower.
    Explain in details
    Thank you.
    Like if you want him to do the experiment
    Edit: you can replace water with other liquids to insight us more or for fun!

      Solid means the molecules are closer, so under high pressure it is gonna faster. Someone above told it wrong so I thought I should tell...

                        Some mineral processing industries use a suspension of magnetite (FE3O4) powder in water as a "heavy medium" to separate less dense minerals from more dense ones. Magnetite for that purpose is sold by the truck load. With a few phone calls you would probably be able to buy a 50 lb sack of pulverized magnetite.

                              So if i used gold would i get the same plating effect? And does it matter what metal i used as well as it being painted over🤔

                                  After watching several Nickel-plating YouTube videos, I experimented with an acid solution and also a vinegar/salt solution. My plating is strong but always dark brown. Can you please advise.

                                              When you take a "silver"/nickel coin, heat it a lot and dip it in alcohol it does a double boil and also turns it copper

                                                    Or alternatively you can take 91 percent rubbing alcohol a coin(quarter nickel etc.)and a kitchen torch. Using thick gloves and tongs heat the quarter up till it starts to glow a bit then dropping the coins quickly into the rubbing alcohol it turns copperish shade
