Implosion

You can create implosion experiment at home simply using aluminium can and a little bit of water and cold water filled with ice if possible. Heat the can filled with a little water to the boiling point of water. Next put the hot can to the cold water. The temperature differences will create pressure difference. The pressure in the can will be smaller than the pressure outside. These are perfect circumstances for implosion.

Implosion is a total opposite physical reaction of explosion. But it can be as dangerous as explosion. Implosion is representing a big risk in a lot of industrial facilities. Implosion is a process in which objects are destroyed by collapsing or being squeezed in on themselves. True implosion usually involves a difference between internal (lower) and external (higher) pressure. Great example is a submarine being crushed from the outside by the hydrostatic pressure of the surrounding water.

If you want to do experiment, we recommended doing it just on small scale (with the can). Bigger examples of implosion are in the video just for examples so that you do not do it at home. As we mentioned before Implosion is dangerous. It can still come to dangerous flying parts that can hurt you. So wear safety glasses. The bigger scale examples as you can see it in the video are usually done for workers safety education by the companies that they work in. It is representing a great dangerous in some working circumstances.
