interesting word , implosion , did i understand it right , it’s when something explodes within itself, like a heart attack , exploding and crumbling, problem is though , that explosions according to all evidence are natural , implosions are orchestrated , that’s why males only have heart attacks , maybe i’m not informed right , i never heard of a woman having a heart attack

What if i put the cap on a pressure cooker after it already started boiling and then, when i'm done cooking, cool it under the sink? Will it implode as well? That would realistic mistake to be done by someone

No, it wouldn't, because it's a, y'know, pressure cooker. Just saying...

Imagine guys using this in a movie using reallife props meant to be crushed by someone using that telekinesis instead of CGI they would throw in effect this implosion science on some objects when crushed

Cold-> hot (ex) Hot-> cold (im) Once all light runs out (perhaps even sooner) the universe will operate in this exact same simulation of a vacuum. Thus in this process the necessary reverse of the second law of thermal dynamics must come into place for existance to continue as it has for all of “time”. ♻️

That is, if there is any external pressure. We do not know whether the universe is isolated or surrounded by other "things".

I'm trying to figure out when the best time is to open my window to maximize fresh air and minimize dust being sucked in. Might just have to put a filter on the window...

Extreme water pressure in a air filled submarine or submersible causes an implosion to.

im wondering if this can be reversed but I doubt it
Le Dabmaster Tipping Bro
Axel Gabriel Ayala Jiménez it might eventually explode just as an actual implosion would be far more destructive than the one in video.
Le Dabmaster Tipping Bro
Axel Gabriel Ayala Jiménez Sure you can by doing the opposite. fill it with cold gas or liquid and then start heating it up.
Axel Ayala Jimenez
Axel Ayala Jimenez Vor 2 years
Correct, im sure that statement sounded stupid but i meant it as in expanding the can without causing an actual destructive explosion, just a reaction that would expand it

For that you would have to find out how water reacts in an vacuum and which aggregate phase it has there. Pretty sure there are sources somewhere on the Internet describing the water aggregate phase in a vacuum. I would assume it's simply a fluid water and a vacuum above it in the empty space.

Aren't those tanker cars pressure vessels though? How do 55-gallon drums and turpentine cans serve as accurate scale comparisons if they are not designed to withstand external or internal pressures?
OnThe23rd Vor 4 years
+RobinHood East Yes, changing shape doesn't necessarily mean imploding through. As we see now, the tank car did not implode until it was compromised. I'm sure that it was slightly deformed under the vacuum though.

It's as if two people were pushing a block on opposite ends, one guy becomes too cold losing energy so the other guy wins by pushing it back

+Elias Olsson now i knew, a few boiling water inside after cooling to no pressure b/c hot air return liquid. like this.
Elias Olsson
Elias Olsson Vor 4 years
+47 elite No, more like atmospheric pressure to no pressure. I'm not sure you're understanding. The air inside is being replaced by steam, water vapor, which when cooled down returns to liquid, water. All that space previously occupied by steam is now empty, meaning the pressure drops and the atmospheric air pressure (which is very high, around that of 10m/33 feet of water) crushes the container.
