Light bulb vs liquid nitrogen

From NileRed Shorts. Check out my main channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/NileRed ——————————————- This is just a regular light bulb, but I’m only interested in its insides.

This ice cube is too heavy

From NileRed Shorts. Check out my main channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/NileRed ——————————————- Ice normally floats on water because as water freezes it expands, and the density of the solid becomes less than the liquid. This on the other hand is an ice cube that I made, but this one’s kind of special, because it’s able to sink. • Nile talks…

Tasting the world’s most bitter chemical

From NileRed Shorts. Check out my main channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/NileRed ——————————————- This is something called denatonium benzoate, and it’s supposed to be the most bitter chemical known. For a while though I’ve been really wanting to try it, and to see how bad it actually is.  • Nile talks about lab safety (chemistry is dangerous): https://youtu.be/ftACSEJ6DZA​ NileRed Store: https://nilered.tv/store ——————————————-…

Sodium and potassium vs liquid nitrogen

From NileRed Shorts. Check out my main channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/NileRed ——————————————- A while ago I made some NaK, which is a potentially explosive mixture of sodium and potassium metal. And something that I’ve always wanted to do, is combine it with liquid nitrogen. • Nile talks about lab safety (chemistry is dangerous): https://youtu.be/ftACSEJ6DZA​ NileRed Store: https://nilered.tv/store…

Drinking heavy water

From NileRed Shorts. Check out my main channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/NileRed ——————————————- This just looks like a generic little bottle of water, but it actually cost me over  $100. The liquid is deuterium oxide (D2O), and it’s often called heavy water. Something that I’ve always wanted to know, is what it tastes like. • Nile talks about lab safety…

Chomping through metal (Indium)

From NileRed Shorts. Check out my main channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/NileRed ——————————————- What I have here is a chunk of indium, and I think it’s pretty cool. It’s extremely soft and non-toxic, so I should be able to bite through it. • Nile talks about lab safety (chemistry is dangerous): https://youtu.be/ftACSEJ6DZA​ NileRed Store: https://nilered.tv/store #shorts ——————————————-

Making a bouncy egg by dissolving its shell

From NileRed Shorts. Check out my main channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/NileRed ——————————————- For this one, I’m gonna be doing something weird with an egg.

Uranium is safe compared to this…

From NileRed Shorts. Check out my main channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/NileRed ——————————————- In this vial, is a concentrated form of uranium called sodium diuranate (Na2U2O7), and it’s extremely radioactive.

Gallium vs aluminum bat

From NileRed Shorts. Check out my main channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/NileRed ——————————————- Gallium looks a lot like mercury, except unlike mercury, it really likes sticking to glass.  It also has a very different and unique reaction, when it’s added to aluminum.  I’ve actually never tried this myself, and I think I’ll test it out on this aluminum bat.   • Nile talks about…

This gem is actually a fossil (ammolite)

From NileRed Shorts. Check out my main channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/NileRed ——————————————- Ammolite comes from the shells of an extremely old and extinct group of animals called ammonites. Unlike other gemstones, they’re also technically fossils, and I think they’re pretty cool. • Nile talks about lab safety (chemistry is dangerous): https://youtu.be/ftACSEJ6DZA​ NileRed Store: https://nilered.tv/store ——————————————- #shorts

Watch me eat pure spiciness

From NileRed Shorts. Check out my main channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/NileRed ——————————————- Capsaicin is basically pure spiciness, and it’s the main chemical that gives chili peppers their heat. Even in the stronger ones like habaneros, there’s actually very little in each pepper. It’s so strong that when I’ve tried it in its pure form, I don’t even…

Making glowing goo
