    I want to see you drop a flint from a butane lighter into liquid oxygen. If you heat said flint until it just starts to glow,you will see it actually increase in temperature and brightness......if you toss it to a hard surface while it glows,it will "explode" into a shower of white hot sparks.I want to see its reaction to the liquid oxygen

    Impossible man because Diamond is carbon that's to show the point began of diamond from stone carbon feed with little oxygen nitrogen around stone carbon man

    why would you use jewelry grade diamonds when you could have gotten industrial diamonds for about $0.30/carat?

    King can you fill liquid oxygen in balloon

  • interestingly Uninteresting

    I am just thinking what happens if you put liquid oxygen into a vacuum chamber or mix it with the thing in the fire extinguisher OR mix it with just liquid nitrogen???🤔

    you could save 10 thousand lives in africa instead of melting a diamond for views :).... i m so proud of this superficiality

    Nah, i won't consider this as 'melting' diamonds, i would consider this as reacting them. Its very different btw , as diamonds are considered impossible to melt, it just sublimes. A simplified explanation of why it would not melt is diamonds are basically a bunch of carbon with their 2s and 2p orbitals sp3 hybridised, then covalently bonded to other carbon atom. Since it is very large, as the whole diamond is made up of 1 molecule, it is impossible to have intermolecular forces. However, we can react them (just like this video) or sublimate them by heating them up to 3800K where the covalent bonds break and turn into carbon atoms.Edit: Anyways, i wasn't expecting he to explain electromagnetic wave absorption

    The third way ,put condenser like shape copper pipe on the liquid nitrogen filled container and wait...

    I wonder what it would be like if diamond also formed in sheets like the other thing.

    When i heard 1ml liquid oxygen equals 860 ml of gas all i thought of doing is filling a coke bottle with liquid oxygen then seal the container and put it in boiling water and watch it explode

    What if you tried to make dry ice burn with liquid oxygen?

    Yeah should put carbon dioxide and liquid nitrogen together😁

    KING OF RANDOM I bet if you put a fan on your styrofoam cups with liquid nitrogen you would get more oxygen.

    7:46 “stoichiometricaly in high excess” that just means there’s more oxygen than charcoal. Why doesn’t he just say that why is he trying to seem like he’s smart and knows what he’s talking anout

    Chemically speaking diamonds are still harder than graphite because they are all bonds versus intermolecular forces holding sheets together.
