Nitrogen is in a liquid state when at a very low temperature. Liquid nitrogen boils at −196 °C / −321 °F. It is easily transported and has many useful applications including storing items at cold temperatures, in the field of cryogenics, as a computer coolant, fertilizers, dynamite, medical anesthetic and even car racing! Under normal conditions nitrogen is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas, and it makes up around 78% of the air you breathe. Nitrogen is present in all living things, including the human body and plants.
In this live science demonstration with Jason, we’ll see some amazing science with liquid nitrogen – make sure you watch all the way to the end!
